stream-inflate CircleCI Test Coverage

Uncompress Deflate and Deflate64 streams in pure Python.

Installation

pip install stream-inflate

Usage

To uncompress Deflate, use the stream_inflate function.

from stream_inflate import stream_inflate
import httpx

def compressed_chunks():
    # Iterable that yields the bytes of a DEFLATE-compressed stream
    with httpx.stream('GET', 'https://www.example.com/my.txt') as r:
        yield from r.iter_raw(chunk_size=65536)

for uncompressed_chunk in stream_inflate()[0](compressed_chunks()):
    print(uncompressed_chunk)

To uncompress Deflate64, use the stream_inflate64 function.

for uncompressed_chunk in stream_inflate64()[0](compressed_chunks()):
    print(uncompressed_chunk)

For Deflate streams of unknown length where there may be other data after the compressed part, the following pattern can be used to find how many bytes are not part of the compressed stream.

uncompressed_chunks, is_done, num_bytes_unconsumed = stream_inflate()
it = iter(compressed_chunks())

while not is_done():
    chunk = next(it)
    for uncompressed in uncompressed_chunks((chunk,))
        print(uncompressed)

print(num_bytes_unconsumed())

This can be useful in certain ZIP files.
