I am pleased to announce the first release of Sydebar, a browser sidebar =
generator for Python documentation. For the impatient, sample outputs=20
for all Python versions ever released can be found here:
The program generates a single, self-contained XHTML file for a specific =
Python documentation URL, which can be local or remote. The generated=20
file is loaded into the sidebar of some popular browsers (tested on=20
Firefox and Opera, Mozilla should work as well), and presents a tabbed=20
interface with one page for each of the following documentation sections:=
* Language reference
* Library reference
* Python/C API
* Extending and embedding
* Global module index
Each page shows a collapsible tree of chapters, with links opening the=20
corresponding section in the main browser pane. The global module index=20
features an incremental search functionality with fast keyboard navigatio=
Moreover, a search page allows performing searches on various subsets of =
python.org (specific parts of the website, PEPs, newsgroups, PyPI and=20
the issue tracker).
The documentation and PyPI entry can be found here:
I would like to mention that Sydebar was inspired by python-sidebar from =
Daniel Lundin at Edgewall Software, and even though I didn't borrow any=20
code from there, the layout does bear quite some resemblance.
Feedback is very welcome.
Thanks for reading!
