QuickLook plugins

Recently I’ve caught onto QuickLook plugins for my Mac. I went and got the QLColorCode one, which syntax highlights the languages I use that aren’t highlighted by default (i.e. IDL) and also the EPSQLPlugin.

Since the EPS plugin only works for .eps files by default, you can open the EPSQLPlugin.qlgenerator ‘file’ you copied into /Library/QuickLook or ~/Library/QuickLook and then edit the Info.plist file. Add a line below

<string>com.adobe.encapsulated-postscript</string>

which reads

<string>com.adobe.postscript</string>

Then you’ll get previews of both .eps and .ps files. Yay!

[Unfortunately the preview doesn’t seem to work for .ps files generated by everything. I can preview ones made by PGPLOT but not IDL]
