Brotli is a Ruby implementation of the Brotli generic-purpose lossless compression algorithm that compresses data using a combination of a modern variant of the LZ77 algorithm, Huffman coding and 2nd order context modeling, with a compression ratio comparable to the best currently available general-purpose compression methods. It is similar in speed with deflate but offers more dense compression.
Add this line to your application's Gemfile:
And then execute:
Or install it yourself as:
$ gem install brotli
require 'brotli' compressed = Brotli.deflate(string) decompressed = Brotli.inflate(compressed)
After checking out the repo, run
bin/setup to install bundle and Brotli C library dependencies.
rake build to build brotli extension for ruby. Then, run
