FileManager

class FileManager : NSObject
  • Zips the file or direcory contents at the specified source URL to the destination URL.

    If the item at the source URL is a directory, the directory itself will be represented within the ZIP Archive. Calling this method with a directory URL file:///path/directory/ will create an archive with a directory/ entry at the root level. You can override this behavior by passing false for shouldKeepParent. In that case, the contents of the source directory will be placed at the root of the archive.

    Throws

    Throws an error if the source item does not exist or the destination URL is not writable.
