Have a Quick Look

I was going to write this up for downloading but it's almost too simple.

Select a track in the Music app and run this script to open a Quick Look panel displaying the track's file, ready to play.

tell application "Music"


set sel to selection

if sel is {} then return

set theTrack to item 1 of sel

tell me to doQuickLook(POSIX path of ((get theTrack's location) as text))

on error


end try

end tell

on doQuickLook(loc)


do shell script "qlmanage -p " & quoted form of loc & " >& /dev/null &"

end try

end doQuickLook
