Ubiquity-rdoc, better rdoc searching


#1

Hi everyone,

I wrote a set of Mozilla Ubiquity commands that allow the user to
search on rdocs, also featuring autocomplete, load of any rdoc hosted
on the web and changing the default rdoc when searching.

The project is hosted here: http://projects.talleye.com/ubiquity-rdoc

and GitHub.

Please, let me know any bug, suggestion, etc

wow, awesome! now i know how much i missed that :slight_smile:

maybe we could extend it a bit to jump directly to a specific
method? say ‘rdoc String#delete’ gives us the rdoc for String’s
delete method (right now i’d have to get my hand off the keyboard to
select it from the list). this has definitely the potential to
become my new favourite rdoc browser. thanks for sharing!

Hi Jean,

Yesterday I started a branch on Github for working in persistent
indexes when using rdoc-load. But improvements on search is also in my
todo list.

Anyone could contribute, of course.

Thanks for the suggestion,

Cipriani

have anything to contribute.

You guys could hook it into http://rails.loglibrary.com/lookup. This
takes the syntax like Ruby Array#size or Ruby Array size or just
distance_of_time_words or just Array and will link you right to the
documentation.
