How to zip folder recursively using Python (zipfile)

This script will zip the folder myfolder recursively to myzip. Note that empty directories will not be copied over to the ZIP.

#!/usr/bin/env python3
import zipfile
import os

# This folder 
folder = "myfolder"

with zipfile.ZipFile(f"{folder}.zip", "w") as outzip:
    for subdir, dirs, files in os.walk(folder):
        for file in files:
            # Read file
            srcpath = os.path.join(subdir, file)
            dstpath_in_zip = os.path.relpath(srcpath, start=folder)
            with open(srcpath, 'rb') as infile:
                # Write to zip
