History

Minizip was originally developed by Gilles Vollant and had been contributed to by many people. As part of the zlib distribution, Mark Adler still maintains the original minizip project which is included in this repository as a reference.

My work with the minizip library began in 2006 when I started submitting bugs I found to Gilles Vollant. In 2010, I implemented some additional features like WinZip AES encryption, disk splitting, and I/O buffering that were necessary for another project I was working on. Shortly after, I created this public repository so I could share these and other improvements with the rest of the world. I have been maintaining and actively developing this code base ever since. At the beginning of 2017, I began the work to refactor and rewrite the library as version 2 because it had become difficult to maintain and code readability suffered over the years.

Features

  • Creating and extracting zip archives.
  • Adding and removing entries from zip archives.
  • Read and write raw zip entry data.
  • Reading and writing zip archives from memory.
  • Zlib, BZIP2, and LZMA compression methods.
  • Password protection through Traditional PKWARE and WinZIP AES encryption.
  • Buffered streaming for improved I/O performance.
  • NTFS timestamp support for UTC last modified, last accessed, and creation dates.
  • Disk split support for splitting zip archives into multiple files.
  • Preservation of file attributes across file systems.
  • Unicode filename support through UTF-8 encoding.
  • Legacy character encoding support CP437, CP932, CP936, CP950.
  • Turn off compilation of compression, decompression, or encryption.
  • Windows (Win32 & WinRT), macOS and Linux platform support.
  • Streaming interface for easy implementation of additional platforms.
  • Support for Apple's compression library ZLIB implementation.
  • Zero out local file header information.
  • Zip/unzip of central directory to reduce size.
  • Ability to generate and verify CMS signature for each entry.
  • Recover the central directory if it is corrupt or missing.
  • Example minizip command line tool.

Build

To generate project files for your platform:

  1. Download and install cmake.
  2. Run cmake in the minizip directory.
cmake . -DBUILD_TEST=ON
cmake --build .

Acknowledgments

Thanks to Gilles Vollant on which this work is originally based on.

Thanks go out to all the people who have taken the time to contribute code reviews, testing and/or patches. This project would not have been nearly as good without you.

The ZIP format was defined by Phil Katz of PKWARE.
