!! UPDATE !!
Hi all. I'm afriad I don't have time to maintain this project any more. I see the issues mounting but I don't have time to answer them. This was a pet project some time ago and I still use the plugin daily and it works just fine for me in it's current form. If anyone would like to step forward and be added a contributor to move it forward, please send me a message.
Reinforcement have arrived :-)
I have volunteered to bring Duncan's excellent QL plugin a bit more up to date. Don't expect to much though. I will focus on backlogged pull requests to begin with.
QLStephen is a QuickLook plugin that lets you view plain text files without a file extension. Files like:
README INSTALL Capfile CHANGELOG etc...
- Download the latest version of QuickLookStephen
- Copy the file into
~/Library/QuickLook(You can create the
QuickLookfolder if it doesn’t exist)
Compliling the project yourself? Just copy the generated
file into the relevant
QuickLook folder (as above).
If you’ve installed the plugin, but don’t see any changes:
- Make sure you are editing (a) the correct plist of (b) the correct bundle.
(For example, you might have two
QLStephenplugins. It’s possible the plugin in another directory—perhaps
/Library/QuickLook/—is what is being read.)
qlmanage -rin the Terminal. (This will restart QuickLook, which reloads all plugins.)
Because I was listening to Adam and Joe when I first wrote it.
