Quick Look on files [MacOS]

  • Would be great to preview files without opening them.
    Even better, to have thumbnails of files (supported by system)

  • @freestef Do you mean file previews in File Explorer widget?

  • Yes Alex, that's what I mean.

    In other words, the widget could displays files as a list or as thumbnails, same as in Finder windows (Mac). The Quick Look also would be great. That's when a file is selected in the widget, pressing the space bar opens a popup to preview the file.

    I mean those are accessible through the OS API but I'm not a developer and don't know on what Freeter is developed.

  • @freestef Got it. Thanks for the clarification! Not sure if it will be possible to get native thumbnails and keep it fast at the same time. However the previews with the space bar should be ok, at least for images and plain text files. Added to the roadmap.

    Would be possible to preview those images ( from file explorer widget ) inside and existing Image Widget and preview text files inside an existing Text Widget ?

  • @alexk Yep not being able to see the thumbnails is a deal breaker for me as a web designer. Playing with setting up my first project now in Freeter and will see if I can launch a finder window or bridge window instead. I'm going to attempt to setup my WP backend in a web window, where I'll need to access images to edit (with Photoshop app) and then drag and drop into WP Freeter widget. Any other workaround suggestions would be helpful. Love the app but see this as a major shortcoming. Even really low thumbnails would be great.

  • Actually, from within the browser interface of Freeter, there's no way to drag and drop files anyway. When trying to drag files into the new media area of the WP backend, it just opens the file as if you were trying to open it in the browser. So, that's not an option. As a workaround, I'm going to edit files in another desktop space with Photoshop there and just upload them as normal.
