InternetMessageType.js

![NPM version][npm-badge] [npm-badge]: https://badge.fury.io/js/internet-message-type.png

InternetMessageType.js is a library to parse the Content-Type and body of RFC 733 (ARPA Network Text Message), RFC 822 (ARPA Internet Text Messages) and RFC 2822 (Internet Message Format) objects. Works well with InternetMessage.js.

Installing

npm install internet-message-type

InternetMessageType.js follows semantic versioning, so feel free to depend on its major version with something like >= 1.0.0 < 2 (a.k.a ^1.0.0).

Using

var InternetMessage = require("internet-message")
var InternetMessageType = require("internet-message-type")

var headers = {"Content-Type": "application/json"}
var msg = new InternetMessage(headers, '{"name":"John","age":42}')

var type = InternetMessageType.parse(msg)["content-type"]
type.type // => "application"
type.subtype // => "json"

Parse a message, its type and body

All InternetMessage.js and InternetMessageType.js parse functions are composable. Just use any compose helper, e.g. the one in Underscore.js, to create a single function:

var _ = require("underscore")

var parse = _.compose(
  require("internet-message-type/body").parse,
  require("internet-message-type").parse,
  require("internet-message").parse
)

API

For extended documentation on all functions, please see the InternetMessageType.js API Documentation.
