a high performance, general purpose data compressor written in rustProject mention: A Firehose of Rust, for busy people who know some C++ | reddit.com/r/programming | 2021-06-01
A user interface for Windows 10 filesystem compressionProject mention: Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy "We wanted to give you an update on the final size of the PC version of the game, which will not be 150 GB. The team is in the last stages of optimizing the final game and we can confirm the file size will be approximately 80 GB at launch." | reddit.com/r/pcgaming | 2021-10-20
Compactor shaved 30% off my DCS install - 80GB instead of 114GB.

Brotli compressor and decompressor written in rust that optionally avoids the stdlib
Tar file reading/writing for Rust
Zip implementation in Rust (by zip-rs)Project mention: Hey Rustaceans! Got an easy question? Ask here (36/2021)! | reddit.com/r/rust | 2021-09-07
Thank you for answering. I did think it was strange that reading a file from the archive requires a mutable borrow, I did some digging on the crate's GitHub and it appears like the author has plans to fix this eventually. (https://github.com/zip-rs/zip/issues/147)
Rust LZ4 bindins libraryProject mention: Integrating Rust into the Android Open Source Project | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-05-11
Painless compression and decompression in the terminalProject mention: Whats your favourite open source Rust project that needs more recognition? | reddit.com/r/rust | 2021-10-11
Shameless plug here, my favorite project currently is ouch, nobody knows about it, but I think it might gain some traction when we publish it again.
Run Linux Software Faster and Safer than Linux with Unikernels.
Pure rust zip & zip64 reading and writingProject mention: Zip extraction on WebAssembly | reddit.com/r/rust | 2021-05-09
rc-zip looks appealing but it doesn't work on webassembly yet. https://github.com/rust-compress/rc-zip/issues/16
A Rust implementation of the Zopfli compression algorithm. (by carols10cents)
A Brotli implementation in pure and safe Rust
A Rust crate that provides a simple interface for LZMA compression and decompression.
A Swiss Army Knife for handling compressed data in RustProject mention: Downloading multiple files concurrently. Do I need async? | reddit.com/r/rust | 2021-10-05
That is also an I/O operation. Luckily it seems like they have Tokio support. But my question is what if they didn't (hypothetically), would that be a blocking I/O? Would I have to call it using spawn_blocking in that case?
Pure Rust bzip2 decoder (by paolobarbolini)Project mention: Pure Rust bzip2 decompressor implementation | reddit.com/r/rust | 2021-01-30
Fixed in: https://github.com/paolobarbolini/bzip2-rs/commit/9d24208e7c953cd510239340f499e47f5b70b305
Image Compression AlgorithmProject mention: An image compression algorithm written entirely in Rust (help and contributions appreciated) | reddit.com/r/compression | 2021-01-18
