The revised patch https://codereview.qt-project.org/157721 makes Quick Look show .pro/.pri/.qbs/.qrc/.ui/.qml/.qdoc/.qdocconf/.creator/.qmlproject files as text.
.qml is already also handled by the Info.plist of qml.app (that’s why it already works there).
I’ll look into adding the same to qmake/rcc/uic/qbs/qdoc, so one doesn’t even need to have Qt Creator installed.
