zipfile Titanium Module


A simple Titanium module to create, extract and add to (since 0.1.20) zip files. Requires Titanium SDK version 1.6.3 or above.


Edit the file "titanium.xcconfig" for your current SDK setup. You can find the current TITANIUM_SDK_VERSION by looking in the directory specified by TITANIUM_SDK (depending on your setup, you may also need to change this from /Library/… to ~/Library).

Then run:



Download or build from source zipfile module.

Put into your Titanium Application Support directory (either /Library/Application\ Support/ or ~/Library/Application\ Support/) and unzip it.

How to use

Register the zipfile module with your application by editing 'tiapp.xml' and adding the module:

    <module version="0.1.20">zipfile</module>

Zip File Extraction Example

//app.js: download zip from DropBox to Documents folder and extact file to Documents folder

// This loads the module for use in the JavaScript
var zipfile = require("zipfile");


var win1 = Titanium.UI.createWindow({  
    title:'ZipFile test',
var xhr = Titanium.Network.createHTTPClient();

xhr.onload = function()
    var f = Ti.Filesystem.getFile(Ti.Filesystem.applicationDataDirectory,'');
    zipfile.extract(Ti.Filesystem.applicationDataDirectory+'/', Ti.Filesystem.applicationDataDirectory);

Zip File Creation Example

    // This loads the module for use in the JavaScript.
    var zipfile = require("zipfile");

    var zip = zipfile.create("/path/to/zip/as/");
    zip.addFile("/path/to/file/to/add/filename", "path/in/zip/filename");

Opening Existing Zip File Example For File Addition/Update

    // This loads the module for use in the JavaScript
    var zipfile = require("zipfile");

    var zip ="/path/to/zip/as/");
    // This will return false if it does not exist. Now, add/update files to it
    zip.addFile("/path/to/file/to/add/filename", "path/in/zip/filename");
