stringmime(mime, x)

Returns an AbstractString containing the representation of x in the requested mime type. This is similar to reprmime except that binary data is base64-encoded as an ASCII string.


  1. Convert a string to JSON format:

    julia> str = "Hello, Julia!";
    julia> json = stringmime("application/json", str)
    "{\"type\":\"string\",\"value\":\"Hello, Julia!\"}"

    This example converts the string str to a JSON representation using the MIME type "application/json".

  2. Encode binary data as base64 string:

    julia> data = [0x48, 0x65, 0x6c, 0x6c, 0x6f];  # ASCII representation of "Hello"
    julia> base64 = stringmime("text/plain", data)

    In this example, the binary data data is encoded as a base64 string using the MIME type "text/plain".

  3. Convert an array to a CSV string:
    julia> arr = [1 2 3; 4 5 6; 7 8 9];
    julia> csv = stringmime("text/csv", arr)

    This example converts the array arr to a CSV string representation using the MIME type "text/csv".

Common mistake example:

julia> x = 10;
julia> stringmime("image/png", x)
ERROR: MethodError: no method matching stringmime(::String, ::Int64)

In this example, the stringmime function is used to convert an integer x to the MIME type "image/png". However, the stringmime function expects x to be convertible to the requested MIME type. It's important to ensure that the input x is compatible with the specified MIME type.
