A smart and simple plugin that provides keyboard shortcut access for Dash, Velocity or Zeal in IntelliJ IDEA, RubyMine, WebStorm, PhpStorm, PyCharm and Android Studio.
To install the plugin in your IDE go to Preferences -> Plugins -> Browse repositories and search for "Dash".
The default shortcut assigned to search is Cmd-Shift-D (Mac OS X) or Ctrl-Shift-D (Windows, Linux).
A menubar command named either "Search in Dash" (Mac OS X), "Search in Velocity" (Windows) or "Search in Zeal" (Linux) can be found in the "Tools" menu.
The plugin either searches for the statement at caret position or the current selection. It will identify the programming language in use and request filtered results accordingly.
You can change the shortcut at Preferences -> Keymap -> Plug-ins -> Dash.
You can add a "Search in Dash/Velocity/Zeal" button to the toolbar. Right-click the menubar -> Customize […]. You will find the button under "Plug-ins -> Dash".

The plugin does not work on old IDEs
Older IDE versions like AppCode 1.x are not supported anymore. Please manually install version 2.2 of the plugin: https://github.com/gdelmas/IntelliJDashPlugin/releases/tag/2.2
In rare conditions the installation from the repositories does not work
It looks like there is an IntelliJ/Java bug with OS X Mavericks which prevents to install plugins from the repositories. Please install the plugin manually from here. For additional information check issue #13.
