NOTE: this crate will remain in
mime stabilizes. Backwards-compatible changes will
be backported to the
1.x-maint branch but upgrades to
mime will constitute an alpha version bump.
Adding or correcting MIME types for extensions
Is the MIME type for a file extension wrong or missing? Great! Well, not great for us, but great for you if you'd like to open a pull request!
The file extension -> MIME type mappings are listed in
src/mime_types.rs. The list is sorted alphabetically by file extension, and all extensions are lowercase (where applicable). This is necessary only for the sanity of the crate maintainers; extension search is case-insensitive.
Simply add or update the appropriate string pair(s) to make the correction(s) needed. Run
cargo test to make sure the library continues to work correctly.
(Important!) Citing the corrected MIME type
When opening a pull request, please include a link to an official document or RFC noting the correct MIME type for the file type in question. Though we're only guessing here, we like to be as correct as we can. It makes it much easier to vet your contribution if we don't have to search for corroborating material.
Changes to the API or operation of the crate
We're open to changes to the crate's API or its inner workings, breaking or not, if it improves the overall operation, efficiency, or ergonomics of the crate.
