py-mod_zipper -- Apache module written in Python for browsing of Zip files

The goal of this project is to provide an Apache module written in Python, which allows browsing of Zip files through your web browser.

The py-mod_zipper module also allows the users to download individual files from a Zip archive, without having to download and extract the whole Zip archive upfront.

This makes it very useful for browsing Zip archives and getting only the files you are interested in.

And all that you can do from your web browser!
