Tar implemented in the browser
Have you ever wanted to tar something, but you didn't want to push it to your server first?
Tar-js is here to the rescue!!
With tar-js, you can construct a tar archive in the browser. This is basically a port of tar-async for Nodejs for the browser, with a couple differences.
Here's what it supports:
Tar needs an HTML5 compliant browser. More specifically it needs
Uint8Array to work.
The examples depend on pakmanager, a package manager for the browser to make code written for node run in the browser. Install it as such:
var Tar = require('tar'), tape = new Tar();
Then all you got to do is call
tape.append with your params and it'll be added to the archive. That's it!
Here's the api for append:
append(filepath, content, [opts], [callback])
