Aspose.Zip for Python via .NET is a Python API to create, manipulate, extract & protect archive formats including ZIP, BZIP, BZ2 & TAR. It allows your Python applications to compress/decompress files and folders without getting into the complexity of coding new compression algorithms or understanding the existing ones. Enable your programs to work with a vast range of features, such as creating archives, saving archives, archive extraction, encrypting/decrypting archives, compressing single or multiple files as well as directory contents. It also allows you to apply security to your archived and compressed files and folders via password, AES (128, 192, 256) encryption, or mixed encryption. Check out the Landing Pages of Aspose.Zip for Python via .NET for a more detailed description of the features and possibilities of the library.

Archive Processing Features

  • Compress files and folders into standard ZIP formats.
  • Supports Deflate, Bzip2 & LZMA compression algorithms.
  • Apply simple password or AES128, AES192, AES256 encryption to archives.
  • Employ different protection schemes for each file within an archive.
  • Append more files to an existing zipped archive.
  • Use Gzip or Bzip2 to pack files & folders into a TAR archive.
  • Supports LZMA or LZMA2 compression & optional encryption to create 7z archives.
  • Create self-extracting compressed archives.

How to ZIP files

import as zp

with zp.Archive() as archive:
	archive.create_entry("entry_name.dat", "input_file.dat")'')

How to UnZIP files

import as zp

with zp.Archive("") as archive:

How to create 7z Archive with AES Encryption

import as zp
import io

with zp.sevenzip.SevenZipArchive(zp.saving.SevenZipEntrySettings(None, zp.saving.SevenZipAESEncryptionSettings("p@s$"))) as archive:
	archive.create_entry("data.bin", io.BytesIO(b"\x00\xFF"))"result_archive.7z")
