A Simple Compression Solution

Project description

oZip - Simple compression solution in Python
============================================

Installation
------------

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 https://github.com/OzTamir/oZip
$ cd oZip
$ python setup.py 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

Roadmap
-------

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
improvements:

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