Build an object of MIME conformant headers and output as string

MIME Headers

Travis CI Test Status

Build a MIME headers object for emails that will output as a string. Headers will be Base64 encoded when necessary.

npm install mime-headers

To use:

var headers = require('mime-headers')();
headers.push('Content-Type: text/plain');
headers.push('Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable');

// Content-Type: text/plain
// Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable

Extending encoded words

Non-ASCII text is automatically encoded as encoded words using B-encoding. I didn't have a specific need to provide Q-encoding but I welcome tests & patches to enable it. In particular, I would welcome using lib/mime-encode.js as the API and making 2 modules: b-mime-encode and q-mime-encode.
