The code

var gzipme = require('gzipme');

// Compress "file.txt" to "file.txt.gz" in the same dir.
gzipme("file.txt"); 

// Compress "file.txt" and overwrite it to "file.txt" in the same dir.
gzipme("file.txt", true); 

// Compress "file.txt" to specified file "compressed.txt" in the same dir.
gzipme("file.txt", "compressed.txt");

// Compress "file.txt" using best compress mode (few bytes, but slow compression).
gzipme("file.txt", false, "best"); 

// Compress "file.txt" using fast compress mode (fast compression, but more bytes).
gzipme("file.txt", false, "fast");
