    Does anyone know of an FTP program for OSX that can detect new or changed files in the local source folder and upload them automatically?

    Ideally it would be able to delete the local file after a successful upload.

    One solution is to use Automator with Transmit from Panic.

    You need to put together a 2 step workflow and save it as a folder action.

    Automator comes with every Mac and allows you to stitch together a simple application/utility without writing any code.

    If you're comfortable with the Unix side of your Mac, you can write a simple shell script and set it up in launchd to run whenever the contents of a specific folder changes.

    If you go that route, I'd advise using Lingon to schedule the launchd task.

    Or use Automator to run the shell script.
