Welcome to snappy

snappy is a fast Haskell library for working with data compressed using Google's Snappy format. It is implemented as a binding to the Snappy library.

It implements zero-copy compression and decompression of both strict and lazy bytestrings, the standard Haskell types for managing binary data efficiently.
