Regular zip binaries and libraries often generate different zip files from the same files most often because of metadata or timestamps. Deterministic-zip guarantees to always generate the same zip file every time.
This is a major problem when creating a reproducible build. The output from two builds from identical source would generate two different zip files.
With deterministic-zip you are guaranteed to get the exact same file every time you build from the same input.
npm install deterministic-zip --save
const zip = ;;
This is a very new library. I use it myself, but it has not been extensively test across multiple platforms, especially Windows.
