A streaming compression / gzip module for node.js
To install, ensure that you have libz installed, and run:
node-waf configure
node-waf build
This will put the compress.node binary module in build/default.
Quick example
var compress=require("./compress");
var sys=require("sys");
var posix=require("posix");
// Create gzip stream
var gzip=new compress.Gzip;
// Pump data to be compressed
var gzdata1 = gzip.deflate("My data that needs ", "binary");
sys.puts("Compressed size : "+gzdata1.length);
var gzdata2 = gzip.deflate("to be compressed. 01234567890.", "binary");
sys.puts("Compressed size : "+gzdata2.length);
var gzdata3 = gzip.end();
sys.puts("Last bit : "+gzdata3.length);
// Normally stream this out as its generated, but just print here
var gzdata = gzdata1+gzdata2+gzdata3;
sys.puts("Total compressed size : "+gzdata.length);
