Special thanks to rguerreiro author of https://github.com/rguerreiro/express-device who tracked down the device matching code from https://github.com/bjankord/Categorizr

I needed to use this without using express. its a small lib so i bundled it up for all to enjoy.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
