FileWrapper

FileWrapper is a Rails plugin and RubyGem which wraps the command line utility 'file' to detect the mime-type of a file.

Installation as Rails plugin

From the Rails project root, execute:

script/plugin install git://github.com/Narnach/file_wrapper.git

Installation as gem

When you have setup gemcutter.org as a gem source, you can install it with:

sudo gem install file_wrapper

When you have setup gems.github.com as a gem source, you can install it with:

sudo gem install Narnach-file_wrapper

If you want tests and the project's history, you can clone the git repo and build the gem yourself:

git clone git://github.com/Narnach/file_wrapper.git
cd file_wrapper
rake install

Example
