Node-Zipfile

Bindings to libzip for handling zipfiles in node.

Example

> var zipfile = require('zipfile')
> var zf = new zipfile.ZipFile('./data/world_merc.zip')
> zf
{ names: [ 'world_merc.dbf', 'world_merc.prj', 'world_merc.shp', 'world_merc.shx' ],
  count: 4 }
> var buffer = zf.readFileSync('world_merc.prj')
> buffer.toString()
'PROJCS["Google Maps Global Mercator",GEOGCS .... '

Depends

node >= 0.2.4 (development headers)

libzip (optionally)

Installation

Install node-zipfile:

$ git clone git://github.com/springmeyer/node-zipfile.git
$ cd node-zipfile
$ ./configure
$ make
$ make install

Make sure the node modules are on your path:

export NODE_PATH=/usr/local/lib/node/

Or you can install via npm:

$ npm install zipfile

Dynamically linking against libzip

node-zipfile depends on libzip, but by default bundles a copy in deps/ which is statically linked.

If you which to use an external libzip fir install it:

Debian:

$ sudo apt-get install libzip-dev libzip1

OS X:

$ brew install libzip

Or from source:

$ wget http://nih.at/libzip/libzip-0.9.3.tar.bz2
$ tar xvf libzip-0.9.3.tar.bz2
$ cd libzip-0.9.3
$ ./configure
$ make
$ sudo make install

Then on linux do:

$ sudo ldconfig

Now, configure node-zipfile with the --shared-libzip option:

$ ./configure --shared-libzip

If you installed libzip in a custom location then configure like:

$ ./configure --shared-libzip --libzip=/opt/local

Otherwise /usr/ and /usr/local will be searched for libzip:

$ ./configure --shared-libzip
$ make
$ sudo make install
$ ./test.js
