What can you do with zip files?
I am just curious, can you publish an app or website with zip files? (I am very new to programming, so don't really know what a zip file is)
- .zip is not something really related to programming, it's a filetype lol
- .zip files are compressed folders. You can reduce the file size of big files like videos and high-res images by compressing them into a .zip.
- Depends on what you mean. You can download zip files from a website, but you cannot host a website from zip files. You would need to extract the files from the .zip first.
What a Zip File Is
"ZIP is an archive file format that supports lossless data compression."
A zip file is compressed files or folders. It is very widely used today.
And no, you cannot publish apps or websites as a zip file, but it can contain them.
Hope this helps!
A google search can help you with a lot of questions,
