MHTifier

Un/packs an MHT (MHTML) archive into/from separate files, writing/reading them in directories to match their Content-Location.

Whole story is in my devlog.

Issues

  1. Cleanest would've been to use stdin/out, but turned out inconvenient, annoying even, so added command line options.
  2. Python's stdlib module's performance (premature optimization?): email.message_from_bytes(mht.read()) # Parser is "conducive to incremental parsing of email messages, such as would be necessary when reading the text of an email message from a source that can block", so I guess it's more efficient to have it read stdin directly, rather than buffering.
  3. Encodings (ascii, UTF-8) and de/coding was painful, and probably still buggy.
  4. base64 encoded binaries: my editor, Geany, suffocates, I think, when wrapping these long lines?
  5. Verify index.html is present!?
  6. A few un/Pythonisms, idioms,I guess.
