Heads up! API Changes in 0.4.0

The API changed in v0.4.0. Please see the documentation below for details on the new API. Don't hesitate to create an issue if you have any questions.

Install

Install with npm

$ npm i lang-map --save

Usage

var map = require('lang-map');

Get language by extension

Returns the language that is associated with the given file extension (with or without .):

var map = require('lang-map');
 
map.languages('coffee');
//=> [ 'coffeescript' ]
map.languages('handlebars');
//=> [ 'handlebars' ]
map.languages('hbs');
//=> [ 'handlebars' ]
map.languages('javascript');
//=> [ 'javascript' ]
map.languages('js');
//=> [ 'javascript' ]
map.languages('md');
//=> [ 'markdown' ]
map.languages('mkdown');
//=> [ 'markdown' ]

Why is an array of languages returned?

In some (rare) cases an extension maps to multiple languages.

map.languages('h');
//=> [ 'c', 'c++', 'objective-c' ]

Get extensions by language

Returns the list of file extensions associated with the given language:

var map = require('lang-map');
 
map.extensions('coffee');
//=> [ 'coffee', '_coffee', 'cjsx', 'cson', 'iced' ]
map.extensions('hbs');
//=> [ 'handlebars', 'hbs' ]
map.extensions('markdown');
//=> [ 'md', 'markdown', 'mkd', 'mkdn', 'mkdown', 'ron' ]
map.extensions('md');
//=> [ 'md', 'markdown', 'mkd', 'mkdn', 'mkdown', 'ron' ]
map.extensions('c');
//=> [ 'c', 'cats', 'h', 'idc', 'w' ]
