Download & Install
After downloading Suspicious Package above, if OS X didn't automatically extract the application, double-click the XIP archive.
You can drag Suspicious Package to your Applications folder, or wherever else you'd like to keep it. (If Quick Look doesn't seem to be using Suspicious Package to preview packages, see more info here.)
Suspicious Package requires OS X 10.11 (El Capitan), OS X 10.10 (Yosemite) or OS X 10.9 (Mavericks). For other releases of OS X, see more info here.

- Browse installed files as in the Finder, and get more metadata.
- Examine install scripts in a proper editor, with clipboard and find support.
- Open install scripts in other applications if you prefer.

- Open file and script views in multiple tabs.
- Built-in analysis flags potential issues for review.
- Automation via AppleScript.
With this new version, the Quick Look plug-in is bundled inside of the Suspicious Package application. Even if you only want to use the Quick Look feature of Suspicious Package, this simplifies installation — no more ironic Suspicious Package package! Just put the app in the Applications or Utilities folder (or wherever you want) and the plug-in will be available to Quick Look. And if you do want more information than what the Quick Look preview provides, the app is one click away.
