Synopsis

    -- ¥ curl -F "file=@evil_script.jpg;type=image/jpeg"  localhost:8888
    -- You saied 'image/jpeg', but we found 'text/plain'
    local mime_sniff = require "lib.mime_sniff"
    local upload = require "resty.upload"
    
    local chunk_size = 1445 -- 512 is enough for the most cases
    
    local form, err = upload:new(chunk_size)
    if not form then
        ngx.log(ngx.ERR, "failed to new upload: ", err)
        ngx.exit(500)
    end
    
    form:set_timeout(1000)
    
    local submit_content_type
    local actual_content_type
    while true do
        local typ, res, err = form:read()
        if not typ then
            ngx.say("failed to read: ", err)
            return
        end
    
        if typ == "header" and res[1] == "Content-Type" then
            submit_content_type = res[2]
        elseif typ == "body" then
            --if not mime_sniff.match_content_type("image/jpeg") then
            --if not mime_sniff.match_content_type({"image/gif", "image/jpeg"}) then
            actual_content_type = mime_sniff.detect_content_type(res)
            break
        elseif typ == "eof" then
            break
        end

Methods

detect_content_type

syntax: content_type = mime_sniff.detect_content_type(data)

detect_content_type could be used to detect real Content-Type of the given data. It considers at most the first 1445 bytes of data, though first 512 bytes are enough for the majority of cases. This function always returns a valid MIME type: if it cannot determine a more specific one, it returns "application/octet-stream".

match_content_type

syntax: match_content_type = mime_sniff.match_content_type(data, types, ...)

match_content_type checks if the given data's Content-Type matches any of the given types. The types is an array-like table or strings, and the length of data should be long enough. (1445 bytes at most and 512 bytes is enough) Note that the order of types is important. The first type matches first. This function will return matched type or nil, or throw an error if none of the given types is supported yet. For the list of supported mime types, please refer to the wiki: https://github.com/spacewander/lua-resty-mime-sniff/wiki/MIME-type-support-status
