File Type Checker

Detect and validate file types by their signatures (✨magic numbers✨)

  • Supports a wide range of file types.
  • Detects the type of a given file using a detection mechanism.
  • Validates files against their requested types using signatures.
  • Provides flexibility for the file data type: choose from Array<number>, ArrayBuffer, or Uint8Array.
  • Written in TypeScript for full typing support.
  • Works on both server and client sides.
import fileTypeChecker from "file-type-checker";

// ... Read file as `Array<number>`, `ArrayBuffer`, or `Uint8Array`.

fileTypeChecker.detectFile(file); // Returns the detected file info
fileTypeChecker.validateFileType(file, ["png", "gif", "jpeg"]); // Returns true if the file is an image from the accepted list
fileTypeChecker.isPNG(file); // Returns true if the file is a valid PNG image

// ... And many more validator functions for each supported type.

Note

  • Only file signatures are checked; additional validation may be necessary.
  • To ensure optimal performance all files should be at least 64 bytes in size.
  • To ensure optimal performance with ZIP files, it is recommended to utilize the 'chunkSize' optional parameter and pass the first 30000 bytes.
  • This package assumes little-endian byte order; adjust code for big-endian.

Example Usage

Browser (React, Angular, Vanilla JS, etc.):

Validate file signature against a list if file types (React app example):

import fileTypeChecker from "file-type-checker";

// Function to handle file input change
const handleFileInputChange = (event) => {
  try {
    const file = event.target.files[0];
    const reader = new FileReader();
    const types = ["jpeg", "png", "gif"];

    // When the file is loaded, validate its type
    reader.onload = () => {
      const isImage = fileTypeChecker.validateFileType(reader.result, types);
      console.log(isImage); // Returns true if the file is an image from the accepted list
    };

    // Use the FileReader API to read the file as an ArrayBuffer
    reader.readAsArrayBuffer(file);
  } catch (err) {
    console.error("Error: ", err.message);
  }
};

return (
  <div>
    <input type="file" onChange={handleFileInputChange} />
  </div>
);
import fileTypeChecker from "file-type-checker";

// Function to handle file input change
const handleFileInputChange = (event) => {
  try {
    const file = event.target.files[0];
    const reader = new FileReader();
    const types = ["mp4", "avi", "mov"];

    // When the file is loaded, validate its type
    reader.onload = () => {
      const isVideo = fileTypeChecker.validateFileType(
        reader.result,
        types,
        { excludeSimilarTypes: true } // (optional parameter) if we don't want to validate 'm4a' signature as 'mp4' type
      );
      console.log(isVideo); // Returns true if the file is a video from the accepted list
    };

    // Use the FileReader API to read the file as an ArrayBuffer
    reader.readAsArrayBuffer(file);
  } catch (err) {
    console.error("Error: ", err.message);
  }
};

return (
  <div>
    <input type="file" onChange={handleFileInputChange} />
  </div>
);

Validate file signature against a single file type (React app example):

import fileTypeChecker from "file-type-checker";

// Function to handle file input change
const handleFileInputChange = (event) => {
  try {
    const file = event.target.files[0];
    const reader = new FileReader();

    // When the file is loaded, check if its type is PNG
    reader.onload = () => {
      const isPNG = fileTypeChecker.isPNG(reader.result);
      console.log(isPNG); // Returns true if the file is a valid PNG image
    };

    // Use the FileReader API to read the file as an ArrayBuffer
    reader.readAsArrayBuffer(file);
  } catch (err) {
    console.error("Error validating file type: ", err.message);
  }
};

return (
  <div>
    <input type="file" onChange={handleFileInputChange} />
  </div>
);

Detect file by its signature (React app example):

import fileTypeChecker from "file-type-checker";

// Function to handle file input change
const handleFileInputChange = (event) => {
  try {
    const file = event.target.files[0];
    const reader = new FileReader();

    // When the file is loaded, detect its type
    reader.onload = () => {
      const detectedFile = fileTypeChecker.detectFile(reader.result);
      console.log(detectedFile) >
        {
          extension: "png",
          mimeType: "image/png",
          description:
            "PNG (Portable Network Graphics) is a lossless image compression format that supports a wide range of color depths and transparency and is widely used for high-quality graphics.",
          signature: {
            sequence: ["89", "50", "4e", "47", "d", "a", "1a", "a"],
          },
        };
    };

    // Use the FileReader API to read the file as an ArrayBuffer
    reader.readAsArrayBuffer(file);
  } catch (err) {
    console.error("Error: ", err.message);
  }
};

return (
  <div>
    <input type="file" onChange={handleFileInputChange} />
  </div>
);

Node.js:

Validate file signature against a list of file types:

import fileTypeChecker from "file-type-checker";
import fs from "fs";
//const fileTypeChecker = require("file-type-checker"); // legacy way
//const fs = require("fs"); // legacy way

// Read a file as an ArrayBuffer
const file = fs.readFileSync("/path/to/my/file.png").buffer;

// A list of accepted image file types
const types = ["jpeg", "png", "gif"];

const isImage = fileTypeChecker.validateFileType(
  file,
  types,
  { chunkSize: 32 } // (optional parameter) all images signatures exists in the first 32 bytes
);

console.log(isImage); // Returns true the file is an image from the accepted list
