Pantomime is a tiny Clojure library for working with MIME types and file metadata.

Pantomime 2.0 introduces a new (natural) language detection feature built on top of Apache Tika and drops support for Clojure 1.3.

Future versions will likely introduce more functionality built on top of Tika, making Pantomime more than just a “tiny libarry for working with MIME types”).

Changes between Pantomime 1.8.0 and 2.0.0

Clojure 1.3 is No Longer Supported

Pantomime 2.0 drops support for Clojure 1.3.

Language Detection Support

pantomime.languages is a new namespace that provides functions for detecting natural languages:

(require '[pantomime.languages :as pl])

(pl/detect-language "this is English, it should not be hard to detect")
;= "en"

(pl/detect-language "parlez-vous Français")
;= "fr"
