I just realized that I write about unzipping here, but I forgot to say anything about zipping. So this is a fast write-up on how to zip a folder recursively, and it’s containing folders and files on Linux.
And it’s easy and fast!
Just try to remember that you need the -r argument and that the zip’s name comes first, then the name of the folder you want to recursively zip.
The command is this:
zip -r folder.zip folder
When looking to recursively create a zip archive of the folder named ‘folder’ that is named ‘folder.zip’.
