  Description     : Small module to infer binary file types via signature

 Small and dependency free Python module to infer file type and MIME type
 checking the magic numbers signature of a file or buffer (aka file pattern).
 This is a Python port from filetype Go package.
   - Simple and friendly API.
   - Supports a wide range of file types.
   - Provides file extension and MIME type inference.
   - File discovery by extension or MIME type.
   - File discovery by kind (image, video, audio...).
   - Pluggable: add new custom type matchers.
   - Fast, even processing large files.
   - Only first 261 bytes representing the max file header is required, so you
     can just pass a list of bytes.
   - Dependency free (just Python code, no C extensions, no libmagic bindings).
   - Cross-platform file recognition.
 Currently, the following patterns are recognised:
   - Image: bmp, cr2, gif, heic, ico, jpg, jpx, jxr, png, psd, tif, webp.
   - Video: avi, flv, m4v, mkv, mov, mp4, mpg, webm, wmv.
   - Audio: amr, flac, m4a, mid, mp3, ogg, wav.
   - Archive: Z, ar, bz2, cab, crx, deb, eot, epub, exe, gz, lz, nes, pdf, ps,
              rar, rtf, sqlite, swf, tar, xz, zip, 7z.
   - Font: otf, ttf, woff, woff2.
