#archive - Dart library to encode and decode various archive and compression formats.

The library has no reliance on dart:io, so it can be used for both server and web applications.

The archive library currently supports:

Decoders: Zip (Archive) Tar (Archive) ZLib (Compression) Inflate decompression GZip (Compression) Inflate decompression

Encoders: None yet. Adding Encoders is on my TODO.

Sample usage extract the contents of a Zip file:

import 'dart:io' as Io;
import 'package:archive/archive.dart';
main() {
  Io.File file = new Io.File('test.zip');
  var bytes = file.readAsBytesSync();
  if (bytes == null) {

  var zip = new ZipDecoder(bytes);
  for (int i = 0; i < zip.numberOfFiles(); ++i) {
    String filename = zip.fileName(i);
    List<int> data = zip.fileData(i);
    Io.File fp = new Io.File('out/' + filename);
    fp.createSync(recursive: true);
