I want to create zip file and add some text files into it
We use the write() method to write to a ZIP.
# importing required modules from zipfile import ZipFile import os os.chdir('C:\\Users\\Om\\Desktop') def get_all_file_paths(directory): # initializing empty file paths list file_paths =  # crawling through directory and subdirectories for root, directories, files in os.walk(directory): for filename in files: # join the two strings in order to form the full filepath. filepath = os.path.join(root, filename) file_paths.append(filepath) # returning all file paths return file_paths def main(): # path to folder which needs to be zipped directory = './python_files' # calling function to get all file paths in the directory file_paths = get_all_file_paths(directory) # printing the list of all files to be zipped print('Following files will be zipped:') for file_name in file_paths: print(file_name) # writing files to a zipfile with ZipFile('python_files.zip','w') as zip: # writing each file one by one for file in file_paths: zip.write(file) print('All files zipped successfully!') if __name__ == "__main__": main()
Following files will be zipped: ./python_files\setup.txt ./python_files\add.py ./python_files\logo.JPG All files zipped successfully!

Now let’s see how this works:
We create a function with uses the method os.walk(). In every iteration, it appends the files in that directory to the list paths.
Then, we get a list of the file paths bypassing the Demo directory’s path to the function get_paths().
Then, we create a ZipFile object in WRITE mode. Finally, we use the write() method to write all these files to the ZIP.
