Library for working with Electron's ASAR archives.

Project description

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:

https://github.com/electron/asar

The URL above also contains the format documentation. Code was written for Python >3.4.

Installation

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:

https://pypi.python.org/pypi

Example usage

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 ;)
