A pure Python implementation of the pigz utility.

Project description


The goal of this project is to create a pure Python implementation of the pigz project for parallelizing gzipping.

Usage examples

pigz-python can be utilized by creating a PigzFile object and calling the process_compression_target() method.

from pigz_python import PigzFile

pigz_file = PigzFile('foo.txt')

Alternatively, the pigz_python module also provides a convenient helper method to do all of this work for you.

import pigz_python
