Introduction

Brotli is a 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.

The specification of the Brotli Compressed Data Format is defined in RFC 7932.

Brotli is open-sourced under the MIT License, see the LICENSE file.

Please note: brotli is a “stream” format; it does not contain meta-information, like checksums or uncompresssed data length. It is possible to modify “raw” ranges of the compressed stream and the decoder will not notice that.

Build instructions

Vcpkg

You can download and install brotli using the vcpkg dependency manager:

git clone https://github.com/Microsoft/vcpkg.git
cd vcpkg
./bootstrap-vcpkg.sh
./vcpkg integrate install
./vcpkg install brotli

The brotli port in vcpkg is kept up to date by Microsoft team members and community contributors. If the version is out of date, please create an issue or pull request on the vcpkg repository.

Bazel
