Python bindings for interfacing with Zstandard library


This project provides Python bindings for interfacing with the Zstandard compression library. A C extension and CFFI interface are provided.

The primary goal of the project is to provide a rich interface to the underlying C API through a Pythonic interface while not sacrificing performance. This means exposing most of the features and flexibility of the C API while not sacrificing usability or safety that Python provides.

Zstandard, or zstd as short version, is a fast lossless compression algorithm, targeting real-time compression scenarios at zlib-level and better compression ratios.
