Package description

What is compressible?

The compressible npm package is used to determine if a given MIME type is compressible. This is useful when working with HTTP servers and clients to decide whether to apply compression to a particular resource based on its Content-Type.

What are compressible's main functionalities?

Check if MIME type is compressible

This feature allows you to check if a specific MIME type is generally considered compressible. Text-based formats like HTML are typically compressible, while binary formats like PNG are not.

const compressible = require('compressible');

console.log(compressible('text/html')); // true
console.log(compressible('image/png')); // false

API

compressible(type)

var compressible = require('compressible')
compressible('text/html') // -> true
compressible('image/png') // -> false

compressible.get(type)

Returns the specifications object associated with the given Content-Type. Generates an object using the regex if none is found.

compressible.specs

compressible.regex

The regular expression that checks the Content-Type. However, you should use compressible(type) instead of this regular expression due to additional non-regex checks.
