πŸ“Œ .SIT file definition corresponds to the compressed packages encoded and archived by Smith Micro StuffIt utility. In recent years, the .SIT container category has earned the status of one of the most popular and accustomed file compression schemes applied on Mac workstations. Initially, the .SIT format has been oriented only on Mac stations and nodes. Until now, the extension has achieved cross-platform compatibility, and is widely used on both Windows and Macintosh suites. Moreover, iOS devices are also capable of opening appropriate object content without hindrances. Formerly, the StuffIt archiver has been copyrighted by Allume Systems (earlier entitled as Aladdin Systems), while nowadays the project belongs to the trademark property of Smith Micro group, which maintains and handles the .SIT layout processing.

How to open an .SIT file?

πŸ“Œ .SIT file items can be opened, reviewed and unpackaged by StuffIt Deluxe and StuffIt Expander toolkits, distinguished by original, native compatibility with the noted entry definition. Moreover, you can smoothly open and decompress the internal .SIT content with ExtractNow, Incredible Bee Archiver, and The Unarchiver tools, primarily oriented on Windows and macOS shells. Furthermore, the owners of iPhones and iPads are afforded a chance to explore and discover the .SIT resources with the aid of freeware StuffIt Expander mobile applet, entirely eligible for uncovering and decoding the .SIT data. The standard technology is not supported by Android gadgets. The cross-platform basement of the format has been gained in the latter 2010’s, when the specification range has been expanded to Windows and iOS tablets and smarts.
