Python binding to the Brotli library

Project description


This library contains Python bindings for the reference Brotli encoder/decoder, available here. This allows Python software to use the Brotli compression algorithm directly from Python code.

To use it simply, try this:

import brotli
data = brotli.decompress(compressed_data)

More information can be found in the documentation.
