Compress string using gzip and native browser APIs
function compress(string, encoding) {
const byteArray = new TextEncoder().encode(string);
const cs = new CompressionStream(encoding);
const writer = cs.writable.getWriter();
writer.write(byteArray);
writer.close();
return new Response(cs.readable).arrayBuffer();
}
function decompress(byteArray, encoding) {
const cs = new DecompressionStream(encoding);
const writer = cs.writable.getWriter();
writer.write(byteArray);
writer.close();
return new Response(cs.readable).arrayBuffer().then(function (arrayBuffer) {
return new TextDecoder().decode(arrayBuffer);
});
