Zopfli module for python

Project Description


Python bindings to zopfli

Main public module is pyzopfli.zlib.
It provides emulation of standard zlib module and can be used
in any application as drop-in replace.
Decompression functions are imported in pyzopfli.zlib from zlib.

import pyzopfli.zlib as zlib

pyzopfli may be used with gzip or zipfile modules of standard library
by replacing their zlib module attribute in runtime.

import pyzopfli.zlib as zlib
import zipfile
zipfile.zlib = zlib

You also can slightly cheat and control power of compression with
'levit' attribute of pyzopli.zlib module

import pyzopfli.zlib as zlib
zlib.levit[zlib.Z_DEFAULT_COMPRESSION] = iterations

pyzopfli.zlib passes standard's library unittest with
same failures as native zlib (few failures are errors of decompressor)
Same for gzip and zipfile modules with replaced zlib.
