LZ4 Bindings for Python

Project description


Build Status Build Status Windows Documentation


This package provides python bindings for the lz4 compression library by Yann Collet.

At this time the project contains bindings for the LZ4 block format, which are considered stable.

Support for the LZ4 frame format is a work-in-progress and is considered beta quality. It should work fine, but changes to the API may happen prior to the 1.0 release.

A future relase will implement support for the LZ4 stream format.



Full documentation is included with the project. The documentation is generated using Sphinx. Documentation is also hosted on readthedocs.
