This is the ziparchive home page, a new and feature-full python package for manipulating zip archives. It supersedes zipfile—from the standard python library—, is built on a more general design, and offers new features such as:

  • file-like access to zip members;
  • support for BZIP2 compression;
  • support for member file removal;
  • support for encryption.

This turns ziparchive in a much better replacement for zipfile from the standard library. It's more efficient, it's easier and have a lot more of features!


You can take a look at the sourceforge project page.
