Open-source C projects categorized as Zlib

Top 17 C Zlib Projects

  • zlib-ng

    zlib replacement with optimizations for "next generation" systems.

  • Project mention: Show HN: Pzip- blazing fast concurrent zip archiver and extractor | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-09-24

    Please note that allowing for 2% bigger resulting file could mean huge speedup in these circumstances even with the same compression routines, seeing these benchmarks of zlib and zlib-ng for different compression levels:

    https://github.com/zlib-ng/zlib-ng/discussions/871

    IMO the fair comparison of the real speed improvement brought by a new program is only between the almost identical resulting compressed sizes.

  • Minizip-ng

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

  • InfluxDB

    Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale. Get real-time insights from all types of time series data with InfluxDB. Ingest, query, and analyze billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality.

  • lzbench

    lzbench is an in-memory benchmark of open-source LZ77/LZSS/LZMA compressors

  • Project mention: Chrome Feature: ZSTD Content-Encoding | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-04-01

    For a benchmark on a standard set: https://github.com/inikep/lzbench/blob/master/lzbench18_sort...

  • lizard

    Lizard (formerly LZ5) is an efficient compressor with very fast decompression. It achieves compression ratio that is comparable to zip/zlib and zstd/brotli (at low and medium compression levels) at decompression speed of 1000 MB/s and faster. (by inikep)

  • precomp-cpp

    Precomp, C++ version - further compress already compressed files

  • matio

    MATLAB MAT File I/O Library

  • TurboBench

    Compression Benchmark

  • Project mention: Zstd Content-Encoding planned to ship with Chrome 123 | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-02-07

    I'm still unconvinced about this addition. And I don't even dislike Zstandard.

    The main motivation seems to be that while Zstandard is worse than Brotli at the highest level, it's substantially faster than Brotli when data has to be compressed on the fly with a limited computation budget. That might be true, but I'm yet to see any concrete or even anecdotal evidence even in the issue tracker [1] while there exist some benchmarks where both Zstandard and Brotli are fast enough for the web usage even at lower levels [2].

    According to their FAQ [3] Meta and Akamai have successfully used Zstandard in their internal network, but my gut feeling is that they never actually tried to optimize Brotli instead. In fact, Meta employs the main author of Zstandard so it would have been easier to tune Zstandard instead of Brotli. While Brotli has some fundamental difference from Zstandard (in particular Brotli doesn't use arithmetic-equivalent coding), no one has concretely demonstrated that difference would prevent Brotli from being fast enough for dynamic contents in my opinion.

  • 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).

  • tinf

    Tiny inflate library (inflate, gzip, zlib)

  • merecat

    Small and made-easy HTTP/HTTPS server based on Jef Poskanzer's thttpd

  • Project mention: Leaking Bitwarden's Vault with a Nginx vulnerability | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-07-03
  • fast_zlib

    Heavily optimized zlib compression algorithm

  • SwiftSDL2

    Swift wrapper around Simple Direct Media Layer (SDL2) for macOS, iOS, Linux and Windows

  • zlib

    Ruby interface for the zlib compression/decompression library (by ruby)

  • zlib

    Compression and decompression in the gzip and zlib formats (by haskell)

  • Stm32-FatFs-Gzip

    This project offers a simplified compressor that produces Gzip-compatible output with small resources for microcontrollers and edge computers. He uses the very basic LZ77 compression algorithm and static Deflate Huffman tree encoding to compress / decompress data into Gzip files.

  • zlib-bindings

    Low-level wrapper around the zlib library

  • jdeflate

    DEFLATE compressor/decompressor implementation
