Simple question: is it possible to get the "Quick Look" of images and text files by clicking the results of ls in an iTerm2 window?

1 Answer 1


Can't find any relevant documentation anywhere, and this does not seem to work Terminal, but this is possible.

On my machine (macOS Sierra), I can triple-click a filename or folder after calling ls in iTerm2, and the Quick Look window pops up. Very neat!

    You can adjust this behavior in iTerm2 in the Preferences/Pointer section.
