Unobtrusive yet easily accessibleMost of the Pacifist interactions are reduced to dragging and dropping the archives you want to preview on top of the Pacifist Dock icon. The app is able to deal with .dmg disk images, .pkg package files, and .zip / .tar / .tar.gz / .tar.bz2 / .xar archives.
After processing the data, Pacifist opens a new window where you can browse the package contents or search for specific items. However, the more complex Pacifist features, are accessible via the apps main window: you can close it at any time, but it will reappear after you dismiss all other windows.
Open archives over the InternetWhile using Pacifist, you do not have to actually download the packages to be able to preview their content: simply input the archive URL in the “Open URL” dialogue and the app takes care of the rest.
Browse Apple installersPacifist can be used to view the content of Apple install disks or packages that include Mac OS X installers. As a result, you can extract only specific files and try to repair your system without having to reinstall it.
In addition, via the “Search Receipts” function, Pacifist is able to determine the app that generated a certain file, allowing you to find out how you can fix certain issues.
Powerful yet easy to use unarchiverPacifist proposes simple yet efficient solutions for browsing the content of various types of archives without taking the time to actually extract the data. All in all, the app is a great tool to have around at all times.
