zip GUI is a user interface for the command line tool zip.

Long time i miss a GUI for the command line tool zip, that set a password to it. Then I take a near look at the zip command and finally get created a zip file with password. Since the idea to create a own GUI for the zip command are born.


The structure of the program is based on the haiku Expander. I like this program due to its simplicity.


To add files to the program use the Source button or Drag and Drop to the program. All files are listed into the source list.

You can enter at Target the output folder.

Use the buttons zip and unzip to compressed or decompressed a specified tar archive.


If you want to list all entries of a zip archive, select a archive in the source list and activate the check box contents.

Then you activate the check box all files, all files of the source list will be compressed or decompressed.

To enter the preferences use the File menu and then the option Preferences.

All settings are as they were changed, effective immediately.
