Since I started working with computers, my favorite file format was ‘zip’, popularized by the Windows PKZIP program. The idea of compressing data into shorter versions of themselves was a fascinating idea.
As I’ve been working on a small project for the past few months, mostly related to backend processing – files, databases etc. The small part of the project needed the ability to read and write zip files. I found the jsZip npm package adequate for my requirement. This allows me to quickly read and write zip files.
