Did you try the docs at http://rubyzip.sourceforge.net/classes/Zip/ZipFile.html?
I have not used it but it looks as if the answer should be there.
Also googling for
zip::zipfile::create add folder
shows lots of good looking hits

Hi Colin,

I solved that. Just I make a directory and add files into that.

here my code:

save_path_file = “/home/name/dest/zip/test.zip”

folder_path = “/path/to_/folder_name”

Zip::ZipFile.open(save_path_file, Zip::ZipFile::CREATE) { |zipfile|

zipfile.mkdir(“folder_name”) unless File.exists?("#{folder_path}")

zipfile.add(‘test’, “/home/my/file/destination/test.pdf”)

}

Thank You!
