  • zeal

    Offline documentation browser inspired by Dash

    I highly recommend using local solutions to this local issue: Zeal[1] (aka Dash[2] on MacOS)

    Load up the "docsets" of your languages (lightly edited HTML docs for indexing purposes) and use a global keyboard shortcut (F8 for me) to pull up Python/Postgres/Terraform docs, searching for the right function without internet query.

    This isn't straight up applicable to all questions of course, but "How do I search regular expressions in Python again?" is now as easy as "re"

    Note that the docsets can be converted from normal HTML ones via doc2dash[3], especially useful to load up custom docs like private providers.
