What's this?

This repository contains serialization, compression and encryption benchmarks for the Lokole email data exchange protocol with the aim to find the method of encoding our dataset in the smallest possible size to save bandwidth for users of the system.

💡 Do you know a compression or serialization that could make our data smaller? Then open a pull request! :octocat:


Install the requirements with pip install -r requirements.txt -r requirements-dev.txt.

Run the tests with python -m benchmarks.tests and run the linter with flake8 benchmarks.

Run the benchmarks via python -u -m benchmarks <emails-zip-url>.


Benchmark results are kept up to date by Github Actions at ascoderu/compression-benchmarks.
