Why marked doesn't support QuickLook?

There is an excellent system in Mac OS which allows a quick glance on various documents: "Quicklook". Marked is a markdown file previewer. Why do I have to open Marked and drop the file on its icon when a simple space bar press should show me nice formatted contents? I consider thumbnail and quick look support a very basic feature for an app that sole purpose is to show markdown documents. Please add this feature to make this excellent previewer complete.

    Had a horrible experience today when I realized that over 50 posts had been moved to the spam folder and I wasn't checking it frequently. I apologize sincerely for the delay in response.

    You might be interested in this post. Because Marked works with any processor and handles so many styles, there's no way to determine for a user what the preview would look like. It's best handled by an external plugin, and the one linked above allows you to import whatever style you like.
