Upload changes only using SFTP/SCP?
Folk using CityDesk to upload websites can get their uploads done very quickly because CD only uploads the changed files; however, as far as I see, sftp/scp users still have to upload the entire site or rely on rsync.
CityDesk will calculate the CRCs for you. Just look in Citydesk.xml. Once the site is produced, there's a copy of this file in a temp directory on your hard drive and a copy on the server. This is how CityDesk decides which files have changed and need to be uploaded. It's mindnumbingly simple so just have a look at citydesk.xml and it will all become incredibly obvious. :)
(light bulbs going off around head) Thanks, and sorry for the dumb question! I managed to whip up a small script that seems to work with my setup. In case anyone else is interested, it's at http://www.chaoszone.org/misc/delta-up.zip -- there's a Readme in the zip file.
