Zeal At Point
Search the word at point with Zeal
Zeal is a simple offline API documentation browser inspired by Dash (OS X app), available for Linux and Windows.
The recommended way to install is via MELPA or Marmalade
zeal-at-point to search the word at point (or string in region), then Zeal is launched and search the word.
Use prefix argument
C-u to edit the search string first.
There is no default keymap defined, but you could setup your own binding like this:
(global-set-key "\C-cd" 'zeal-at-point)
Zeal queries can be narrowed down with a docset prefix. You can customize the relations between docsets and major modes.
(add-to-list 'zeal-at-point-mode-alist '(perl-mode . "perl")) ;; Use multiple docsets (add-to-list 'zeal-at-point-mode-alist '(python-mode . ("python" "django")))
Additionally, the buffer-local variable
zeal-at-point-docset can be set in a specific mode hook (or file/directory local variables) to programmatically override the guessed docset. For example:
(add-hook 'rinari-minor-mode-hook (lambda () (setq zeal-at-point-docset "rails"))) ;; Use multiple docsets (add-hook 'python-mode-hook (lambda () (setq zeal-at-point-docset '("python" "django"))))
You are also possible to set docset for current buffer with
