duckduckgo has a !rubydocs bang search for this site which points https://rubydocs.org/d/ruby-2-3-1/?q= , Unfortunately, this no longer works because the ruby 2.3.1 docs seem to have been dropped.

In fact, this !bang will break periodically as whatever version it refers to is dropped from the index. It would be great if there were a URL like https://rubydocs.org/d/ruby-latest that we could point duckduckgo at that will be vaild for as long as the site exists!

BTW, thanks for the site, it's very helpful!!

Ha, that's pretty awesome! 😄
Do you know who created the bang? Is there a way to find out?

Actually, the docs for Ruby 2.3.1 haven't been dropped (all docs will stay up forever), it was just an error in the way the URL was parsed. I fixed it, so the link should work again.

Something like https://rubydocs.org/d/ruby-latest is a good idea though!
I'll put it on my todo list. 😉
How can we update the bang when it's done?

@yourpalal https://rubydocs.org/d/ruby-latest works now (just like https://rubydocs.org/d/rails-latest and any-other-project-latest). 😄
I resubmitted the bangs to DDG.
Thanks again for the idea!
