lua-resty-fileinfo

lua-resty-fileinfo is a file information library implementing LuaJIT bindings to libmagic.

Hello World with lua-resty-fileinfo

local fileinfo = require "resty.fileinfo"
fileinfo"plain-text.txt"

This will return string containing ASCII text. But there are other information available as well.

Installation

Just place fileinfo.lua somewhere in your package.path, preferably under resty directory. If you are using OpenResty, the default location would be /usr/local/openresty/lualib/resty.

Compiling and Installing libmagic C-library

Consult your operating system or package management about installing this (usually it is already installed in most systems).

Using LuaRocks or MoonRocks

If you are using LuaRocks >= 2.2:

$ luarocks install lua-resty-fileinfo

If you are using LuaRocks < 2.2:

$ luarocks install --server=http://rocks.moonscript.org moonrocks
$ moonrocks install lua-resty-fileinfo

MoonRocks repository for lua-resty-fileinfo is located here: https://rocks.moonscript.org/modules/bungle/lua-resty-fileinfo.
