What's the best way to compress strings?

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on /r/cpp

Our great sponsors
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • InfluxDB - Access the most powerful time series database as a service
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • zstd

    Zstandard - Fast real-time compression algorithm

    zstd, whether you want to favor speed or ratio or both its just the best

  • ZLib

    A massively spiffy yet delicately unobtrusive compression library.

    1) zlib https://github.com/madler/zlib

  • SonarQube

    Static code analysis for 29 languages.. Your projects are multi-language. So is SonarQube analysis. Find Bugs, Vulnerabilities, Security Hotspots, and Code Smells so you can release quality code every time. Get started analyzing your projects today for free.

  • Snappy

    A fast compressor/decompressor

  • LZ4

    Extremely Fast Compression algorithm

    lz4 for maximum decompression speed, for data that is often read but rarely written

  • xxHash

    Extremely fast non-cryptographic hash algorithm

    Interestingly they were both developed along xxHash by the great Yann Collet who makes my country proud !

  • InfluxDB

    Access the most powerful time series database as a service. Ingest, store, & analyze all types of time series data in a fully-managed, purpose-built database. Keep data forever with low-cost storage and superior data compression.
