go-smaz

GoDoc

go-smaz is a pure Go implementation of antirez's smaz, a library for compressing short strings (particularly containing English words).

Installation

$ go get github.com/cespare/go-smaz

Usage

import (
  "github.com/cespare/go-smaz"
)

func main() {
  s := "Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of the party."
  compressed := smaz.Compress([]byte(s))           // type is []byte
  decompressed, err := smaz.Decompress(compressed) // type is []byte; string(decompressed) == s
  if err != nil {
    ...
}

Also see the API documentation.

Notes

go-smaz is not a direct port of the C version. It is not guaranteed that the output of smaz.Compress will be precisely the same as the C library. However, the output should be decompressible by the C library, and the output of the C library should be decompressible by smaz.Decompress.
