I have the LWC and I need download the folder with files in zip format. I found JSZip library.Downloaded this file (js). Added its to static resources and import its on my LWC and loaded this file used loadScript:

import JSZip from "@salesforce/resourceUrl/jszip"

async connectedCallback(){
        await loadScript(this, JSZip)
            console.log('success load');

But when i create a zip the system throws an error:

 async downloadFolder(event){
        const folder = event.detail;
        const zip = new JSZip();  <-- there is problem in this place!

!Uncaught (in promise)

Maybe somebody knows what the problem is...

You used the same name for the static resource file (JSZip) that the library itself wants to use (JSZip). Consider import JSZIP from '@salesforce/resourceUrl/jszip' instead, then use loadScript(this, JSZIP).

You could also choose to just make this into an ES6 module. Create a new LWC component named jszip. In that component, copy dist/jszip.min.js from the manual download option into lwc/jszip/jszip.js, and remove the html file. Now, add two lines at the end of this script:

const JSZip = window.JSZip;
export default JSZip;

This should allow you to import without using lightning/platformResourceLoader at all.

import JSZip from 'c/jszip';

This is a trick I've previously used to import the YouTube embedded player.

  • Yes, you are wright. One more question: I have integration with Google Drive (by Named Cred) => i show GD files on my LWC. So, I want to have ability to download folder with files in zip. BUT: I haven`t blobs of these files. these files have only GD properties (name, id, links,parents,...) Do you have some ideas?

  • @НазарЦихуляк To get the blobs, you use files.get. It's unclear at first glance if there's a batch mode one can leverage, but you'd start there; download each file, then you can use JSZip to compress the files to a single file.

  • but it doesn`t work async downloadFolder(event){ const folder = event.detail; let zip = new JSZip(); const content = await getFolderContent({folderId: folder.id}); const files = content.files; for(const file of files){ const upFile = await getFile({folderId:file.id}); zip.file(upFile.name, upFile); } zip.generateAsync({type: 'blob'}) .then((content)=>{ saveAs(content,folder.name +'.zip') }) .catch(() => { console.log('er); }); }

  • When I tried to do this particular trick, it was giving me error that process.nextTick is not supported. Any way to bypass this ? Commented Dec 6, 2023 at 3:33
  • @Nazar process.nextTick is a Node feature, and not available in browsers. Make sure you're grabbing a browser-compatible version, or you can try using browserify to convert your existing code into a bundle that should be browser compatible.
