============================ Announcing Bloscpack v0.15.0 ============================
What is new? ============
Two new high-level API functions have been added:
* 'pack_bytes_to_bytes' * 'unpack_bytes_from_bytes'
As you might expect from the naming, these allow you to perform fully in-memory based compression and decompression via the bytes datatype.
Additionally there are a few bugfixes, support for python-blosc 1.6.1 and support for Python 3.7.
For more info, have a look at the changelog:
Documentation and examples are available at:
What is it? ===========
Bloscpack is a command-line interface and serialization format for Blosc. Blosc (http://www.blosc.org) is an extremely fast meta-codec designed for high compression speeds. Bloscpack allows you to use Blosc from the command-line to compress and decompress files. Additionally, Bloscpack has a Python-API that allows you to compress and serialize data to a file system. Additionally, Bloscpack supports efficient serialization and de-serialization of Numpy arrays and might in fact be one of the fastest ways to save arrays to disk. Bloscpack uses the Python bindings for Blosc (http://python-blosc.blosc.org/) under the hood.
