I don't have an idea how to make it easier and still meet all/most requirements and without cluttering up the api. The way it currently works allows the programmer to control every tiny aspect of a tar member. Maybe it's best to simply add a new entry to the Examples section of the tarfile documentation.

import tarfile, io

with"sample.tar", mode="w") as tar:
    t = tarfile.TarInfo("foo")
    t.type = tarfile.DIRTYPE

    b = "Hello world!".encode("ascii")

    t = tarfile.TarInfo("foo/bar")
    t.size = len(b)
    tar.addfile(t, io.BytesIO(b))
