DEPRECATED - Please use mime-types instead.


Extends the mime module with two main features:

  • Adds some content types for preprocessor/transpiler languages
  • Adds mime.contentType()

Additional types

Checkout lib/types.json for additional content types. Feel free to make PRs to add your own!


An easy way to create a content-type header just by setting an extension or mime type, just like how Express and Koa works!

mime.contentType('html') // => text/html; charset=utf-8 
mime.contentType('json') // => application/json 


This augments the mime module globally. It also loosely depends on mime, so you might want to pin mime in your app.
