Zip Files

Zip Files

Zip Files is a REST API tool that compresses any number of uploaded or processed files across multiple API Calls into a single archived Zip file for convenient download.

Get the best with pdfRest

Ultimate Convenience

Every output file created through pdfRest can easily be retrieved with a simple GET request. But what happens when you create hundreds or thousands of files to download? You can send hundreds or thousands of GET requests, or simply send one API Call to the Zip Files tool to package all of those output files together for one, easy download. The choice is yours between individual file retrieval and bundling files with zip archives.

Mix and Match

Zip Files is flexible to support all combinations of zipping files. Upload new files to zip, bundle previously generated files on the processing server, or mix and match between new uploads and files from previous API Calls.

Quality of Life

As developers, we love when tools provide quality of life improvements. Zip Files was designed with this in mind to make working with all of the other tools as easy and convenient as possible.
