User Guide


mime sets the Content-Type in a response based on the file extension in the request.

Normally, Content-Type is detected automatically for static files by sniffing the content, but this is not always possible. If you encounter responses with the wrong Content-Type or are serving content other than static files, you can use this middleware to set the right Content-Type.


mime ext type

If you have a lot of MIME types to set, open a block:

mime { ext type }

Each line defines a MIME extension-type pair. You can have as many lines as you need in a mime block.


Customize the Content-Type of Flash files:

mime .swf application/x-shockwave-flash

For multiple files:

mime { .swf application/x-shockwave-flash .pdf application/pdf }
