This is a Composer plugin that provides an automated version of the MIME types as defined by the Apache HTTP Server.

The main advantage is that the downloaded database will be updated on each composer install and composer update.

The only thing you need to do to make this work is adding this package as a dependency to your project:

composer require brightnucleus/mime-types

Basic Usage

On each composer install or composer update, a check will be made to see whether there's a new version of the database available. If there is, that new version is downloaded.

Usage is pretty straight-forward. Just use one of the two provided static methods:


use BrightNucleus\MimeTypes\MimeTypes;

// Get the extensions for a given MIME type.
$extensions = MimeTypes::getExtensionsForType( 'image/jpeg' ); // Returns array( 'jpeg', 'jpg', 'jpe' ).

// Get the MIME types for a given extension.
$mimeTypes = MimeTypes::getTypesForExtension( 'jpg' ); // Returns array( 'image/jpeg' ).
