(Node.js) Compress and Decompress Hex String

Imagine we have data represented as a hex string. This example demonstrates how to decode, compress, and re-encode to a smaller hex string representing the compressed data. An even better choice is to re-encode to a more compact encoding such as base64.

Note: This example requires Chilkat v9.5.0.66 or greater.

Install Chilkat for Node.js and Electron using npm at

Chilkat npm packages for Node.js

on Windows, Linux, MacOSX, and ARM

var os = require('os');

    } else {
        var chilkat = require('@chilkat/ck-node21-win64');
