Build Status Coverage Status Hex version

Native zlib driver for Erlang / Elixir. This library focuses on compression / decompression of data streams.


ezlib library can be build as follow:

./configure && make

ezlib is a rebar-compatible OTP application. Alternatively, you can build it with rebar:

rebar compile


ezlib library depends on zlib.

You can use CFLAGS, CPPFLAGS and LDFLAGS to pass custom path to zlib library.


You can start ezlib with the following command:

$ erl -pa ebin
Erlang/OTP 17 [erts-6.3] [source] [64-bit] [smp:4:4] [async-threads:10] [hipe] [kernel-poll:false] [dtrace]

Eshell V6.3  (abort with ^G)

% Start the application:
1> application:start(ezlib).



Unit test

You can run eunit test with the command:

$ rebar eunit
