Standard python pickle, thinly wrapped with standard compression libraries
The standard pickle package provides an excellent default tool for serializing arbitrary python objects and storing them to disk. Standard python also includes broad set of data compression packages.
compress_pickle provides an interface to the standard
pickle.loads functions, but wraps them in order to direct the serialized data through one of the standard compression packages. This way you can seemlessly serialize data to disk or to any file-like object in a compressed way.
compress_pickle supports python >= 3.6. If you must support python 3.5, install
Supported compression protocols:
compress_pickle supports the
lz4 compression protocol, that isn't part of the standard python compression packages. This is provided as an optional extra requirement that can be installed as:
pip install compress_pickle[lz4]
