node-zipfile

Bindings to libzip for handling zipfile archives in node.

Example

var zipfile = require('zipfile');
var zf = new zipfile.ZipFile('./test/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-zipfile 0.3.x depends on node v0.6 and above

node-zipfile 0.1.x-0.2.x works with node v0.2-v0.4

libzip (optionally, otherwise will build against bundled version)

Installation

You can install the latest tag via npm:

npm install zipfile

Or install from github master:

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

Dynamically linking against libzip

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

If you want to use an external libzip first install it:

Debian:

sudo apt-get install libzip-dev libzip1

OS X:

brew install libzip

Or from source:

wget http://nih.at/libzip/libzip-0.10.tar.bz2
tar xvf libzip-0.10.tar.bz2
cd libzip-0.10
./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
