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'

Get the default extension for a content-type.

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