pantomime

build

pantomime is a small library that handles the parsing and normalisation of internet MIME types in Python. This can be useful to normalise invalid, or misformatted MIME types emitted by remote web servers.

Usage

The simplest use is to normalise a MIME type:

from pantomime import normalize_mimetype

assert normalize_mimetype('TEXT/PLAIN') == 'text/plain'
assert normalize_mimetype('plain/text') == 'text/plain'
assert normalize_mimetype(None) == 'application/octet-stream'
assert normalize_mimetype('') == 'application/octet-stream'

Internally, pantomime uses a MIMEType object to handle parsing. It can be used to access more specific information, like human readable labels:

from pantomime import parse_mimetype

parsed = parse_mimetype('text/plain')
assert parsed.family == 'text'
assert parsed.subtype == 'plain'
assert parsed.label == 'Plain text'

Open issues

  • Internationalisation, i.e. make the human-readable labels available in multiple languages.
  • Expand replacements for specific MIME types.
