NAME

node-zopfli - A better-compression alternative to zlib deflate/inflate compression for node.js buffers.

eg. this can be used as a drop in replacement for gzip compression on your web server, and it'll give smaller sizes. see this announcement

streaming is coming soon...

USAGE

Install with npm install zopfli.

var Buffer = require('buffer').Buffer;
var zopfli = require('zopfli');
var input = new Buffer('lorem ipsum dolor sit amet');
var compressed = zopfli.deflate(input);
var output = zopfli.inflate(compressed);

BUILDING

To obtain and build the bindings:

git clone git://github.com/duralog/node-zopfli.git
cd node-zopfli
node-gyp rebuild

You can also use npm to download and install them:

npm install zopfli

TESTS

expresso is required to run unit tests.

npm install -g expresso
expresso

USAGE FROM COMMAND-LINE

There is an executable called zfip which comes if you install globally

npm install -g zopfli
zfip fileiwanttocompress.js
-> fileiwanttocompress.js.gz

CONTRIBUTORS

FUTURE

  • working on making it a stream (duh)
  • usability improvements need to be made to the command zfip
  • fork gzippo and use it for express streaming (also, let's see if I can't upgrade its capabilites to use Express 3 too)
  • add progress events in a binding
  • fix the tests... lolz
