    I see, a web search on "emacs devdocs" gave me three different packages: devdocs.el, emacs-devdocs-lookup and emacs-devdocs-browser. There is some blog post about Emacs and devdocs too.

  • devdocs.el

    Emacs viewer for DevDocs

    Wow, so many devdocs packages! Of the two I mentioned, devdocs-browser is the one in the emacs-devdocs-browser repo you found. But the other one I was thinking of didn't turn up in your search: devdocs. I wasn't aware of the others you found, probably because they aren't on GNU ELPA or on MELPA.

    devdocs-browser and devdocs.el both let you read https://devdocs.io in emacs, and cache them locally. Your language of choice needs to be in devdocs though.
