LZ4 Bindings for Python

Project description


Build Status Build Status Windows Documentation


This package provides python bindings for the LZ4 compression library.

The bindings provided in this package cover the frame format and the block format specifications. The frame format bindings are the recommended ones to use, as this guarantees interoperability with other implementations and language bindings.

A future release may implement support for the LZ4 stream format. Patches and help are welcome.



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