utitool is a macOS command line tool to help you discover files’ Uniform Type Identifiers (UTIs). macOS uses these to match data files to applications that can edit or view them. For example, PreviewMarkdown works with a number of UTIs to provide previews of markdown files.
In Terminal, run:
utitool [file path 1] [file path 2] ... [file path n]
Get data for all the files in the working directory:
$ utitool *
Get data for a named file in the working directory:
$ utitool text.md
Get data for named files in the working directory:
$ utitool text1.md text2.md
Get data for any named file:
$ utitool /User/me/text1.md
