'''FTP server for Pythonista (iOS)
You can use this to exchange files with a Mac/PC or a file management app on the same device (e.g. Transmit).
If you use a Mac, you can connect from the Finder, using the "Go -> Connect to Server..." menu item.
import os
from socket import gethostname
def install_pyftpdlib():
print 'Downloading pyftpdlib...'
import urllib
import shutil
urllib.urlretrieve('', 'pyftpd.tar.gz')
import tarfile
t ='pyftpd.tar.gz')
shutil.copytree('pyftpdlib-1.4.0/pyftpdlib', 'site-packages/pyftpdlib')
import pyftpdlib
except ImportError:
from pyftpdlib.authorizers import DummyAuthorizer
from pyftpdlib.handlers import FTPHandler
from pyftpdlib.servers import FTPServer
