Can we write QuickLook Plugin with AppleScriptObjC

I wrote an GUI-based ASOC application on Xcode which save/load a custom document.
I found Xcode has QuickLook plugin build target. It generates a Objective-C based template.
Github hosts many sample of QuickLook. They are written in various languages.

Can I write QuickLook plugin with AppleScript?


I wrote thousands of AppleScript to realize my idea. Natural language interface, voice recognition commander and so on. Though my mother toungue is strange language, Japanese, my most frequently write language is AppleScript. I believe it is for making things easy and powerful.

I don't think so. The plugin API is C-based, not Objective-C based. It's also an area where performance is paramount, so it probably wouldn't be a good idea anyhow.

Finally, I made a QuickLook independent preview system.

My app write out preview image file and embed the document information by using steganography technology.

Now I can export information embedded image file by PNG format. A friend of mine told an idea.

He said "optical readable data embedding" by using QR code over preview image.
By using several QR codes, I can embed whole document internal information.
