The library is intended for CLI usage:

$ glob-zip --help

Usage: glob-zip [options] <outFile> <globPatterns...>

  -w, --wrap [name]   Define the root path within the zip, defaults to current directory name if flag is present without value
  -l, --lift [depth]  Lift files the given amount of directories for the path in the zip (default: 0)
  -a, --append        Appends to the specified outFile if present. If not, a file with the same name would be removed. (default: false)
  -F, --no-fail       Do not fail when zip would be empty
  -E, --no-empty      Do not include empty directories
  -d, --dry-run       Do not write or delete any files (default: false)
  -V, --verbose       Use verbose output (default: false)
  -v, --version       output the version number
  -h, --help          display help for command

  $ glob-zip *.json                              # easiest usage
  $ glob-zip *.json "sp ace.txt" *.js            # three glob patterns
  $ glob-zip src/**/*.js --wrap backup --lift 1  # effectively renames "src" to "backup" in zip

You can also use it programmatically:

const globZip = require('glob-zip');

  outFile: '',
  globPatterns: ['src/**/*.js', '*.json'],
}, (err) => {
  if (err != null) {
    console.error('Failed to write ZIP', err);
  } else {
    console.log('ZIP file ready!');
