Creates ZIP output streams for Node.JS

branch: master
README.md

zipstream

Creates ZIP output streams. Depends on Node's build-in zlib module for compression available since version 0.6.

This version could use some proper testing. Give me a bump if you experience problems.

Written by Antoine van Wel (website).

Install

    npm install zipstream

API

    createZip(options)

Creates a ZipStream object. Options are passed to Zlib.

    ZipStream.addFile(inputStream, options, callback)

Adds a file to the ZIP stream. At his moment, options must contain "name". If the "store" option is set to true, the file will be added uncompressed.

    ZipStream.finalize(callback(bytes written))

Finalizes the ZIP. When everything is done, callback is called with the total number of bytes in the ZIP archive.

Example

    var zipstream = require('zipstream');
    var fs = require('fs');

    var out = fs.createWriteStream('out.zip');
    var zip = zipstream.createZip({ level: 1 });

    zip.pipe(out);

    zip.addFile(fs.createReadStream('README.md'), { name: 'README.md' }, function() {
      zip.addFile(fs.createReadStream('example.js'), { name: 'example.js' }, function() {
        zip.finalize(function(written) { console.log(written + ' total bytes written'); });
      });
    });
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
