> **A toolbelt for working with MIME types in Elixir.**

This was extracted from [Plug]( so that other projects can make use of it.


To install through Hex:

  1. Add `mime_types` to your list of dependencies in `mix.exs`:

        def deps do
          [{:mime_types, "~> 0.1.0"}]

  2. Add any custom types you want to your `config/config.exs`:

        config :mime_types, custom: %{
          "application/vnd.api+json" => ["json-api"]


The `MIME` module has a minimal surface area:

- [valid?/1](

  Returns whether a MIME type is registered.
- [type/1](

  Returns the MIME type associated with a file extension.
- [path/1](
  Guesses the MIME type based on the path’s extension.

- [types/0](

  List all registered MIME types.
- [extensions/0](

  List all file extensions registered with MIME types.
- [mapping/0](

  Show the complete MIME type mapping.
### MIME.Types

Additionaly, you can `use MIME.Types` to [generate your own registry]( Tack on a Map or Keyword list to supply it with extra types.
