Top 3 C Deflate Projects

  • zlib-ng

    zlib replacement with optimizations for "next generation" systems.

    Project mention: games-emulation/dolphin-9999 is failing to build because devs switched to minizip-ng and zlib uses minizip. I'm not sure how to get it to build now, details in post. | reddit.com/r/Gentoo | 2022-06-20

    (2) There are many packages that rely upon zlib and minizip and switching those underlying dependencies is easier said than done. We can't drop zlib completely and switch: "The idea of zlib-ng is not to replace zlib, but to co-exist as a drop-in replacement with a lower threshold for code change." - https://github.com/zlib-ng/zlib-ng

  • 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).

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • nflate

    Naive implementation of DEFLATE in C for decompressing gzip files (RFC 1951, RFC 1952).

    Project mention: Decompressing a Gzip File by Hand | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-11-24

    Programming a gzip (deflate) decompressor is a really good learning project. I did it last year, ultimately producing a pretty poor but working implementation [0]. I ended up modifying Mark Adler's puff example program to see the intermediary tables it produces to help debug my own implementation. I wish I had known about infgen (also by Adler). The other resource I would recommend, beyond the official specs is this article by Joshua Davies[1], also mentioned in the original post here.
