Have you ever needed to deploy some files to a SAS server as part of an implementation, promotion, or project activity?


Usually this involves some manual steps, ssh, ftp, drag & drop, robocopy, zipping / unzipping etc etc.


Well - there is now "one more" trick for your toolbox!



`sasjs fs compile /source/folder --output`


Simply install the sasjs cli and execute the command above - switching "/source/folder" for your target (local) directory, and "" for the full path to the (local) SAS program you'd like to generate.

This generated program will contain the ENTIRE folder - including subfolders and binary files such as datasets, zip files, excel etc.  You do NOT need to have SAS on your local machine - because the compilation is done using JavaScript.

Once you have compiled the program, you can run it in anywhere in SAS to deploy it - just set the `fsTarget` macro variable to your chosen target directory.  All the subfolders will be created, along with exact copies of each file.


Marking this one as "no solution needed", as it's rather a solution in and of itself!
