What's the best way to compress strings?

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

Our great sponsors
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels
  • GitHub repo zstd

    Zstandard - Fast real-time compression algorithm

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

  • GitHub repo ZLib

    A massively spiffy yet delicately unobtrusive compression library.

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

  • 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.

  • GitHub repo Snappy

    A fast compressor/decompressor

  • GitHub repo LZ4

    Extremely Fast Compression algorithm

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

  • GitHub repo xxHash

    Extremely fast non-cryptographic hash algorithm

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