Is there a deamon/app for ubuntu which could monitor and sync my folder with ftp after editing a file there?

I suggest you rig up a script that's called as a cron job.

Rsync is a classic epic tool for this kind of thing.

I don't think rsync will work over FTP though, so if you must be on FTP as in your question, then perhaps take a look at this script.
