A fast compressor/decompressor

Snappy is a compression/decompression library. It does not aim for maximum compression, or compatibility with any other compression library. Instead it aims for very high speeds and reasonable compression. For instance, compared to the fastest mode of zlib, Snappy is an order of magnitude faster for most inputs, but the resulting compressed files are anywhere from 20% to 100% bigger. On a single core of a Core i7 processor in 64-bit mode, Snappy compresses at about 250 MB/sec or more and decompresses at about 500 MB/sec or more.

To install snappy, paste this in macOS terminal after installing MacPorts

sudo port install snappy
