What are some alternatives?

When comparing libdeflate and zlib-ng you can also consider the following projects:

zstd - Zstandard - Fast real-time compression algorithm

ZLib - A massively spiffy yet delicately unobtrusive compression library.

Minizip-ng - Fork of the popular zip manipulation library found in the zlib distribution.

brotli - Brotli compression format

uzlib - Radically unbloated DEFLATE/zlib/gzip compression/decompression library. Can decompress any gzip/zlib data, and offers simplified compressor which produces gzip-compatible output, while requiring much less resources (and providing less compression ratio of course).

LZ4 - Extremely Fast Compression algorithm

Snappy - A fast compressor/decompressor

tiny_jpeg.h - Single header lib for JPEG encoding. Public domain. C99. stb style.

zlib - Cloudflare fork of zlib with massive performance improvements

FiniteStateEntropy - New generation entropy codecs : Finite State Entropy and Huff0

LZHAM - Lossless data compression codec with LZMA-like ratios but 1.5x-8x faster decompression speed, C/C++
