    contentType.format(obj)

    var str = contentType.format({type: 'image/svg+xml'})

    Format an object into a content type string. This will return a string of the content type for the given object with the following properties (examples are shown that produce the string 'image/svg+xml; charset=utf-8'):

    • type: The media type (will be lower-cased). Example: 'image/svg+xml'
