The Quilt catalog renders previews of the following file types. Whenever possible, Quilt streams the smallest possible subset of the data needed to generate the preview.

Previews are supported for uncompressed files as well as for gzip archives (.gz).

Quilt can display any plaintext file format, including the following.

  • Most programming languages, with syntax highlighting (.cpp, .json, .js, .py, .sh, .sql, etc.)

  • Biological file formats (.bed, .cef, .gff, .fasta, .fastq, .sam, .pdbqt, .vcf, etc.)

  • Text files (.csv, .md, .readme, .tsv, .txt, etc.)
