vim-jquery-doc is a little plugin that helps you to look up jQuery API doc website more quickly.

If you want something similar for Ruby/Rspec/Rails see vim-ruby-doc.


I strongly recommend installing pathogen.vim.

cd ~/.vim/bundle
git clone git://

Or you can unzip it in your ~/.vim directory.

How to use it

When your cursor is on a jQuery method, type JJ (or your own mapping, see settings for that) and the plugin will open a new tab in your browser (or a new instance of the browser) to the related docs. That's all.

Configure it

By default, the plugin uses the xdg-open command to look up the docs but you can easily change the command. For example, if you are on OSX you would like to change it to:

let g:jquery_doc_command='open'

Furthermore you can choose your own mapping in the following way:

let g:jquery_doc_mapping='KK'

Furthermore, the plugin defines the following command to search on the command-line:

  • JQueryDoc
