Module: CarrierWave::MimeTypes

Extended by:
ActiveSupport::Concern
Defined in:
lib/carrierwave/processing/mime_types.rb

Overview

This module simplifies the use of the mime-types gem to intelligently guess and set the content-type of a file. If you want to use this, you'll need to require this file:

require 'carrierwave/processing/mime_types'

And then include it in your uploader:

class MyUploader < CarrierWave::Uploader::Base
  include CarrierWave::MimeTypes
end

You can now use the provided helper:

class MyUploader < CarrierWave::Uploader::Base
  include CarrierWave::MimeTypes

  process :set_content_type
end
