A Simple Compression Solution

Project Description
oZip - Simple compression solution in Python


To install oZip, simply use pip:


$ pip install ozip

If for some reason pip is unavailable (Or you’re on Windows), you can
install by running the following commands:


$ git clone
$ cd oZip
$ python install

If you have any problem with the setup process, you are welcomed to open
a Issue in the project’s repository.

CLI Usage

To compress a file run the following command:


$ ozip -i <Path to file>

This will create a file.ext.ozip in the same path.

To decompress a file, run the following command:


$ ozip -i <oZip File> -d

This will decompress the file in the same path.

GUI Usage

To run the GUI version of oZip, simply run the following command:


$ ozip-gui

This will invoke the GUI version of oZip and it's easy to use from this point


Going forward there are still many things I’m planning to improve, both
in the format design and in my implementation. Just a few of the planned

- Adding a testing suite and make sure oZip plays nice on different
- Optimize both speed and compression ratio
- Adding one of the LZ flavours to improve compression ratio
