  • type: The media type (the type and subtype, always lower case). Example: 'image/svg+xml'

  • parameters: An object of the parameters in the media type (name of parameter always lower case). Example: {charset: 'utf-8'}

Throws a TypeError if the string is missing or invalid.

contentType.parse(req)

contentType.format(obj)

var str = contentType.format({type: 'image/svg+xml'})
