dash-at-point.el --- Search the word at point with Dash
Dash is an API Documentation Browser and Code Snippet Manager. dash-at-point make it easy to search the word at point with Dash.
If you choose not to use one of the convenient packages in
Melpa, you will need to add the directory containing
dash-at-point.el to your
load-path, and then add the following to
(add-to-list 'load-path "/path/to/dash-at-point") (autoload 'dash-at-point "dash-at-point" "Search the word at point with Dash." t nil) (global-set-key "\C-cd" 'dash-at-point) (global-set-key "\C-ce" 'dash-at-point-with-docset)
dash-at-point to search the word at point, then Dash is launched and search the word. Use prefix argument
C-u to edit the search string first.
Dash queries can be narrowed down with a docset prefix. You can customize the relations between docsets and major modes.
(add-to-list 'dash-at-point-mode-alist '(perl-mode . "perl"))
To choose docsets before call Dash, run
dash-at-point-with-docset. The docset options are suggested from the variable
Additionally, the buffer-local variable
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 dash-at-point-docset "rails")))
Dash 1.9.3 introduces a new way to call Dash with keywords (
dash-plugin://), but if you want to use the legacy way (
dash://), set non-nil to
(custom-set-variables '(dash-at-point-legacy-mode t))
