Files Transfer - Desktop Application Development

Electron.js Development by Xamta Infotech

Creating a complete Electron.js application for SFTP file transfer involves several steps, and the code can be quite extensive. However, I can provide you with a simple example to get you started. This example uses the `ssh2-sftp-client` library for SFTP operations.

Before running the code, make sure to install the required npm packages:


npm install electron ssh2-sftp-client


Now, you can use the following sample code for a basic Electron.js SFTP file transfer application:


// main.js

const { app, BrowserWindow } = require('electron');

const path = require('path');

let mainWindow;

function createWindow() {

mainWindow = new BrowserWindow({

width: 800,

height: 600,

webPreferences: {

nodeIntegration: true,




mainWindow.on('closed', function () {

mainWindow = null;



app.on('ready', createWindow);

app.on('window-all-closed', function () {

if (process.platform !== 'darwin') app.quit();


app.on('activate', function () {

if (mainWindow === null) createWindow();

<button id="connect">Connect to SFTP</button>

<button id="upload">Upload File</button>


const { ipcRenderer } = require('electron');

const Client = require('ssh2-sftp-client');

const sftp = new Client();

document.getElementById('connect').addEventListener('click', async () => {

try {

await sftp.connect({

host: 'your-sftp-server-host',

port: 22,

username: 'your-username',

password: 'your-password',


alert('Connected to SFTP');

} catch (err) {




document.getElementById('upload').addEventListener('click', async () => {

try {

await sftp.put('path/to/local/file.txt', 'path/on/remote/server/file.txt');

alert('File Uploaded Successfully');

} catch (err) {








Remember to replace `'your-sftp-server-host'`, `'your-username'`, and `'your-password'` with your actual SFTP server details.

This is a minimal example, and in a real-world application, you would want to handle errors more gracefully, implement more features, and structure your code better. Additionally, consider adding security measures such as securely storing credentials.
