Zip Builder is a Windows Tool That Helps You Easily Create Flashable Zips

Creating a mod for Android takes a lot more work than figuring which code needs to be changed. Most folks who use mods prefer easy-to-flash ZIP files, but there is a certain amount of effort that goes into creating and signing ZIP files for Magisk modules or an AnyKernel2 git repo. That’s why XDA Senior Member TKruzze of PA GApps fame (a precursor of Open GApps) has released a Windows tool called Zip Builder. Zip Builder, which can be used on both shell-script and edify-script installers, builds and signs Android ZIP-based installers from Windows folders, automatically detecting the installation type and including all the components required to build and sign the ZIP installer without the need for additional software. It even supports custom commands that let you generate an MD5 checksum file, include .git folders and related files, append a build date to the output files, and more. All you need is the latest version of Java.
