Library for working with Electron's ASAR archives.
Library for working with Electron’s ASAR archive files. Electron (formely known as Atom Shell) uses it’s own archive format to compress files into a single file. The format is somewhat similar to TAR files. There’s a Node.JS package for working with ASAR files:
The URL above also contains the format documentation. Code was written for Python >3.4.
PyAsar is on PyPi (Python Package Index) and can be installed through Pip:
pip install pyasar
You can view more information about the package on the PyPi package:
from asar import AsarArchive with AsarArchive.open('myasarfile.asar') as archive: archive.extract('/home/mydir')
At the moment that is all what it can do ;)
