python-kerasHow do I use Python Keras to zip a file?

Keras is a deep learning library that is built on top of TensorFlow, and it is not designed to work with files directly. However, it is possible to use the Python zipfile module to zip a file with Keras.

The following example code will create a zip file containing a single file:

import zipfile
from keras.preprocessing.image import ImageDataGenerator

# Create a new zip file
zip_file = zipfile.ZipFile('my_file.zip', 'w')

# Create an ImageDataGenerator object
datagen = ImageDataGenerator()

# Generate a single image
x, y = datagen.flow(x, y, batch_size=1).next()

# Add the image to the zip file
zip_file.write('my_image.jpg', x)

# Close the zip file

The code above will create a zip file named my_file.zip containing a single file named my_image.jpg.

Code explanation

  1. import zipfile : Imports the Python zipfile module.
  2. from keras.preprocessing.image import ImageDataGenerator : Imports the ImageDataGenerator class from the Keras preprocessing image module.
  3. zip_file = zipfile.ZipFile('my_file.zip', 'w') : Creates a new zip file named my_file.zip.
  4. datagen = ImageDataGenerator() : Creates an ImageDataGenerator object.
  5. x, y = datagen.flow(x, y, batch_size=1).next() : Generates a single image.
  6. zip_file.write('my_image.jpg', x) : Adds the image to the zip file.
  7. zip_file.close() : Closes the zip file.
