    mime-types

    NPM Version NPM Downloads Node.js Version Build Status Test Coverage

    The ultimate javascript content-type utility.

    Similar to the mime@1.x module, except:

    • No fallbacks. Instead of naively returning the first available type, mime-types simply returns false, so do var type = mime.lookup('unrecognized') || 'application/octet-stream'.
    • No new Mime() business, so you could do var lookup = require('mime-types').lookup.
    • No .define() functionality
    • Bug fixes for .lookup(path)

    Otherwise, the API is compatible with mime 1.x.

    Install

    This is a Node.js module available through the npm registry. Installation is done using the npm install command:

    $ npm install mime-types

    Adding Types

    All mime types are based on mime-db, so open a PR there if you'd like to add mime types.

    API

    var mime = require('mime-types')

    All functions return false if input is invalid or not found.

    mime.lookup(path)

    Lookup the content-type associated with a file.

    mime.lookup('json')             // 'application/json'
    mime.lookup('.md')              // 'text/markdown'
    mime.lookup('file.html')        // 'text/html'
    mime.lookup('folder/file.js')   // 'application/javascript'
    mime.lookup('folder/.htaccess') // false
     
    mime.lookup('cats') // false

    mime.contentType(type)

    Create a full content-type header given a content-type or extension.

    mime.contentType('markdown')  // 'text/x-markdown; charset=utf-8'
    mime.contentType('file.json') // 'application/json; charset=utf-8'
     
    // from a full path
    mime.contentType(path.extname('/path/to/file.json')) // 'application/json; charset=utf-8'

    mime.extension(type)

    Get the default extension for a content-type.

    mime.extension('application/octet-stream') // 'bin'

    mime.charset(type)

    Lookup the implied default charset of a content-type.

    mime.charset('text/markdown') // 'UTF-8'

    var type = mime.types[extension]

    A map of content-types by extension.

    [extensions...] = mime.extensions[type]

    A map of extensions by content-type.
