Gem Version Build Status

zstd-ruby

Ruby binding for zstd(Zstandard - Fast real-time compression algorithm)

See https://github.com/facebook/zstd

Fork from https://github.com/jarredholman/ruby-zstd.

Zstd version

v1.5.2 (https://github.com/facebook/zstd/tree/v1.5.2)

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'zstd-ruby'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install zstd-ruby

Usage

require 'zstd-ruby'

Simple Compression

compressed_data = Zstd.compress(data)
compressed_data = Zstd.compress(data, complession_level) # default compression_level is 0

Compression using Dictionary

# dictionary is supposed to have been created using `zstd --train`
compressed_using_dict = Zstd.compress_using_dict("", IO.read('dictionary_file'))

Streaming Compression

stream = Zstd::StreamingCompress.new
stream << "abc" << "def"
res = stream.flush
stream << "ghi"
res << stream.finish

or

stream = Zstd::StreamingCompress.new
res = stream.compress("abc")
res << stream.flush
res << stream.compress("def")
res << stream.finish

Simple Decompression

data = Zstd.decompress(compressed_data)

Decomporession using Dictionary

# dictionary is supposed to have been created using `zstd --train`
Zstd.decompress_using_dict(compressed_using_dict, IO.read('dictionary_file'))

Streaming Decompression

cstr = "" # Compressed data
stream = Zstd::StreamingDecompress.new
result = ''
result << stream.decompress(cstr[0, 10])
result << stream.decompress(cstr[10..-1])
