QLProvision – 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

Xcode now have its own mobileprovision Quick Look plugin. Since it’s application-provided it will override user installed plugins, including ProvisionQL.

ProvisionQL will still work for ipa and xcarchive, but if you prefer it also for mobileprovision, just delete Xcode’s QL plugin here:


And run

qlmanage -r

Supported file types:

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