Get the MIME type of a file with Bun

The Bun.file() function accepts a path and returns a BunFile instance. The BunFile class extends Blob, so use the .type property to read the MIME type.

const file = Bun.file("./package.json");
file.type; // application/json

const file = Bun.file("./index.html");
file.type; // text/html

const file = Bun.file("./image.png");
file.type; // image/png
