Open source application to compress or package on Android?


Hello, any open source application that works on Android to compress or package files with a password, no matter the format (Zip, Gzip, Bzip2, TAR, 7z)

I think Termux can be used, but it is a little difficult to explore the package and select a specific file, so I am looking for an application that is open source and supports password.

The Android phone is rooted

Thank you

Since I cannot find a quick result, I suggest you install a few Android archivers (from f-droid.org) and see if they support password protection.

Thank you, I have done it in all F-Droid, but there is no application or application with the integrated function that allows to compress - decompress or package or unpack files with a password

I wonder if a proprietary license is necessary for this, or if there is something open source since I can't find information about it.


Cheers

I use zArchiver on Android. I'm not sure about the app license but it uses open source libraries.
