This quick hack module gives you access to node documentation on the command line.


First edit the file nodedoc and change the value of NODE_DOC_DIR in that file. This is the directory to the node/doc/api directory. You can make a global installation by creating the directory /usr/local/share/node/doc and copying the files there.

Then copy the nodedoc* files to somewhere in your path:

$ sudo cp nodedoc* /usr/local/bin/

Finally, to find documentation for the 'fs' module, type:

$ nodedoc fs

It's all a bit rough and ready. Patches welcome. It requires a perl and an nroff installation to work.

Contains code from the markdown-js project.
