Make quicklookurl also work with filepaths

The new-ish quicklookurl feature in the JSON feedback only works with URLs.

 

The "standard" Quick Look feature (i.e. using arg) also works with filepaths.

 

IMO, quicklookurl should also work with filepaths. It's a very handy feature, and not having it reduces the utility of quicklookurl considerably.

I know, but that's quite a bit more complicated than using the filepath. Languages other than ObjC don't have all the convenience methods for turning paths into URLs and vice versa. You have to start messing around with network libraries instead, and I wouldn't know where to start trying to percent-encode something in bash.

For future reference:

perl -MURI::Escape -ne 'print uri_escape ($_)' <<< "{{input_text}}"

 

And for the reverse:

perl -MURI::Escape -ne 'print uri_unescape ($_)' <<< "{{input_text}}"
