Archive Formats

Built-in Formats#

Archiver supports the following formats out of the box.

ZIP#

The zip-stream package is used to produce ZIP archives.

TAR#

The tar-stream package is used to produce TAR archives.

GZIP compression is also suppported.

JSON#

The JSON format is designed primarily for debugging and just collects and stringifys the entry data into JSON.

Custom Formats#

Archiver also supports the registration of custom archive formats.

The API for this is rather simple at this point but may change over time.
