Zeal is a simple offline documentation browser which is inspired by Dash – a popular offline documentation software for Mac devices. This little software supports two hundred different documentation sets. All popular programming languages and frameworks are supported.
We can think of it as a simple offline documentation archive database – stored on your device, which you can access quickly anytime and search for certain functions.
- Access to close to two hundred available doc-sets from your pc and without the internet connection,
- Simple and easy to use interface and extremely fast, Search through the database with an effective and fast search engine,
- You can customize fonts and even disable small ad on the main window as well through program preferences,
- All documentation sets have been generated and provided by Dash.io,
- There are available extensions for the most popular IDEs, such as Visual Studio, Atom or VIM
However, I would like to see some other features, such as the snippet manager and bookmark integration within the software.
Zeal might be a useful tool for most developers simply because they may carry and access the full documentation for their favourite programming language without accessing the internet.
- Access dev documentation offline
- Simple and easy user interface
- Fast search engine
- Missing some programming languages
