Browsing Python Documentation using the Python Sidebar

2006-09-20, , Comments

Until recently, I worked on a Windows box (even if it was often little more than a display device for my Xterms running on a Linux box). Now, though, I’m using Mac OS X, which seems better all round.

Just one problem, though: I’ve become addicted to the Python Windows documentation browser. I know my way around the documentation hierarchy and can quickly open and close nodes to get where I need to. The search is good too. Unfortunately the Windows help only runs on Windows, and clicking through the online documentation at was getting frustrating.

Luckily I found a nice Mozilla plugin provided by the Python wizards at edgewall. Now I can navigate by opening and closing nodes, as before.
