Streaming cross-platform unzip tool written in node.js. It is an improved version of Evan Oxfeld's node-unzip, which supports unzipping for files with a "STORE" compression (uncompressed files). Unzip provides simple APIs similar to node-tar for parsing and extracting zip files. There are no added compiled dependencies - inflation is handled by node.js's built in zlib support. Unzip is also an example use case of node-pullstream.


```bash $ npm install unzip2 ```

Quick Examples

Extract to a directory

```javascript fs.createReadStream('path/to/archive.zip').pipe(unzip.Extract({ path: 'output/path' })); ``` Extract emits the 'close' event once the zip's contents have been fully extracted to disk.

Parse zip file contents

Process each zip file entry or pipe entries to another stream. Important: If you do not intend to consume an entry stream's raw data, call autodrain() to dispose of the entry's contents. Otherwise you risk running out of memory. ```javascript fs.createReadStream('path/to/archive.zip') .pipe(unzip.Parse()) .on('entry', function (entry) {
var fileName = entry.path;
var type = entry.type; // 'Directory' or 'File'
var size = entry.size;
if (fileName === "this IS the file I'm looking for") {
} else {
}); ``` Or pipe the output of unzip.Parse() to fstream ```javascript var readStream = fs.createReadStream('path/to/archive.zip'); var writeStream = fstream.Writer('output/path'); readStream .pipe(unzip.Parse()) .pipe(writeStream) ```
