JSZip Creates .zip files with JavaScript

Posted · Category: GPL License, MIT License, Tools

JavaScript today is capable of generating a lot of data. The easiest way to deliver multiple files to your users is in a zip file. Instead of wasting server resources and bandwidth you can get the client to do it for you.

JSZip creates .zip files with Javascript automatically for you. The biggest issue with JSZip is that the filenames are very awkward, Firefox generates filenames such as a5sZQRsx.zip.part, and Safari isn’t much better with just Unknown.

    Nice approach, but not ready for serious projects. Opera 11 shows a filesize of about 300.000.000 GB ;)

    I can see a lot of use for this on my web apps already :)

    but not yet ready for primetime I guess, gotta wait a few more weeks/months
