PyCompress

Pycompressor is a tool for compressing text files into smaller ones, as well as extracting compressed files back into the original content.

It can be used as a program or imported as a package module, and use the functions defined on it.

For example, in order to compress one file:

$ pycompress -c -d /tmp/compressed.zf /usr/share/dict/words

The original file, in this example has a size of ~4.8M, and the tool left the resulting file at /tmp/compressed.zf, with a size of ~2.7M.

In order to extract it:

$ pycompress -x -d /tmp/original /tmp/compressed.zf

You can specify the name of the resulting file with the -d flag. If you don’t indicate a name for the resulting file, the default will be <original-file>.comp.

For the full options, run:

$ pycompress -h

Installation

pip install trenzalore

Will install the package and leave an application named pycompress for using the command line utility.

Development

To install the package in development mode, run:

make dev

And run the tests with:

make test

Before submitting a pull request, run the checklist to make sure all dependencies are met (code style/linting, tests, pass, etc.). This is automated with:

make checklist

This will run the checks for the code style (make lint), as well as the tests (make test).

In order to check that the project runs with the supported Python versions, run:

make tox
