Allows streaming, non-rewinding ZIP file output from Ruby.Initially written and as a spiritual successor to zipline and now proudly powering it under the hood.Allows you to write a ZIP archive out to a File, Socket, String or Array without having to rewind it at any point. Usable for creating very large ZIP archives for immediate sending out to clients, or for writing large ZIP archives without memory inflation.zip_tricks currently handles all our zipping needs (millions of ZIP files generated per day), so we are pretty confident it is widely compatible with a large number of unarchiving end-user applications.
