The package is available via npm. It has to be installed as a local dependency:

It consists of three pure functions which can be used to quickly get file extension or corespondent content type from a path.


getContentType: ( path: string) => string | undefined

Lookups correct MIME content-type for specified path and return it as a string. If extension can not be identified returns undefined.

getContentTypeMaybe: (path: string) => Maybe<string>

Works in a very similar way to getContentType, but returns Maybe of the string which is None if MIME type can not be identified.

Support function which helps to extract file extension from a path.
