What we like
Simple CLI to compress or decompress. Automatically detects the right algorithm based on the file extension (or file signature) - no need to specify flags. Can decompress multiple files of multiple types in one go. List archive contents (with tree view). Static MUSL (Rust) binary. Open source.
What we don't like
.zip doesn’t support streaming. Doesn’t support adding/removing files from an existing archive.
