Zeal Docs Features

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 200 available docsetsĀ 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.

In general, this might be a really useful tool for most developers simply because they may carry and access the full documentation for their favorite programming language without accessing the internet.
