A better node for SFTP communication.
Better SFTP was created out of necessity for a SFTP node which was fully implemented and had several options to configure algorithms.
Big shout out to jyu213 for creating ssh2-sftp-client to make development of this node easy.
Run the following command in the root directory of your Node-RED install
npm install node-red-contrib-better-sftp

msg.payload as a directory OR working directory on node config.

msg.payload to get the file OR working directory + file name in configuration will be used.
Put - Set
msg.payload.data to either the file name, buffer stream, or buffer object of the source file.

File contents will be uploaded to the SFTP server in the working directory specified.
