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

Installation

API

var compressible = require('compressible')

compressible(type)

Checks if the given Content-Type is compressible. The type argument is expected to be a value MIME type or Content-Type string, though no validation is performed.

The MIME is looked up in the mime-db and if there is compressible information in the database entry, that is returned. Otherwise, this module will fallback to true for the following types:

  • text/*
  • */*+json
  • */*+text
  • */*+xml

If this module is not sure if a type is specifically compressible or specifically uncompressible, undefined is returned.

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