12.7.1 MimeTypes Objects

MimeTypes instances provide an interface which is very like that of the mimetypes module.

suffix_map
Dictionary mapping suffixes to suffixes. This is used to allow recognition of encoded files for which the encoding and the type are indicated by the same extension. For example, the .tgz extension is mapped to .tar.gz to allow the encoding and type to be recognized separately. This is initially a copy of the global suffix_map defined in the module.

 

encodings_map
Dictionary mapping filename extensions to encoding types. This is initially a copy of the global encodings_map defined in the module.

 

types_map
Dictionary mapping filename extensions to MIME types. This is initially a copy of the global types_map defined in the module.

 

common_types
Dictionary mapping filename extensions to non-standard, but commonly found MIME types. This is initially a copy of the global common_types defined in the module.
 
guess_extension( type[, strict])
Similar to the guess_extension() function, using the tables stored as part of the object.
 
guess_type( url[, strict])
Similar to the guess_type() function, using the tables stored as part of the object.
 
read( path)
Load MIME information from a file named path. This uses readfp() to parse the file.
 
readfp( file)
Load MIME type information from an open file. The file must have the format of the standard mime.types files.
