ProvisionQL - Quick Look for ipa & provision

Thumbnails example

Inspired by a number of existing alternatives, the goal of this project is to provide clean, reliable, current and open source Quick Look plugin for iOS & macOS developers.

Thumbnails will show app icon for .ipa/ .xcarchive or expiring status and device count for .mobileprovision. Quick Look preview will give a lot of information, including devices UUIDs, certificates, entitlements and much more.

Valid AdHoc provision

Supported file types:

  • .ipa - iOS packaged application
  • .xcarchive - Xcode archive
  • .appex - iOS/OSX application extension
  • .mobileprovision - iOS provisioning profile
  • .provisionprofile - OSX provisioning profile

Initially based on Provisioning by Craig Hockenberry.

Homebrew Cask

Homebrew cask is the easiest way to install binary applications and Quick Look plugins.

If you have homebrew installed - just run one line and you are ready:

brew install --cask provisionql

Xcode project

Just clone the repository, open ProvisionQL.xcodeproj and build active target. Shell script will place generator in ~/Library/QuickLook and call qlmanage -r automatically.


  • download archive with latest version from the Releases page;
  • move ProvisionQL.qlgenerator to ~/Library/QuickLook/(current user) or /Library/QuickLook/(all users);
  • run qlmanage -r to refresh Quick Look plugins list.
