ZEAL Integration

Asked by Jeremy Munsch on 2014-07-07

Could Zeal documentations could be integrated ?

Something like
zeal: php array

Zeal search bar actually sucks it is inline and search only in doc titles.

This really could be the must powerfull tool integration for a developper i guess.

see http://zealdocs.org/

Yes! please I was about to ask this, OSX has this with Alfred and Dash integration, Zeal uses the same Dash documentation files, so PLEASE, I beg you PLEASE. Make Synpse integrate with Zeal, that would be so awesome for the developer community.

I have written a working plugin i will now try to push it if i find how on launchpad. Giving more info soon.

Some more info i forgot to mention :

 * It supports queries like :
 * zeal php:php
 * or
 * zeal php constant
 * zeal php:constant
 * php constant
 * php magic constant
 * php magic constant zeal
 * php : magic constant zeal

because zeal CLI does not have more methods to retrieve content you can only.
Maybe some enhancement could be made like reading sqlite entries and building a cache file to give
directly zeal search results on synase toolbar.
