This is for reading/writing *.xz compressed files.
I am aware of https://crates.io/search?q=xz
The to result, a crate named ‘xz’ seems rarely used.
There is another crate, ‘xz2’, which seems far more popular.
Anyone have recommendations / know what’s going on?
I have not used either, but:
- xz has one contributor, 34 commits, and has not been touched in 3 years
- xz2 has 18 contributors, 141 commits, last commit less than a month ago, and the owner of the repo has many other active repos and is well known in the rust community
- They both provide bindings to the same c lib (liblzma)
I know which one I would be using!
yeah, you will be writing your own crate called “xz3”
