Liking cljdoc? Tell your friends :D


A client for the API


(use 'cd-client.core)

Examples work with strings for the ns and name, as well as just a symbol (no quoting needed -- it will not work if you do). The symbol can be of a special form (e.g. let, try, catch), macros (e.g. for, areduce), or functions. Use 'cdoc' to pretty-print the normal Clojure doc string and the following information from examples, see-also list of symbols, and comments.

(cdoc "clojure.core" "map")
(cdoc map)
(cdoc clojure.string/join)

Search for a method using just the name or a namespace and name.

(search "pmap")
(search "clojure.core" "map")

Browse to the url for a symbol in your default browser (takes same arguments as cdoc):

(browse-to "clojure.core" "map")
(browse-to map)

By default, all of the above will query the clojuredocs web site for the results. As an option, you can load a 'snapshot file' of saved results, available in the github repository, and no Internet access is required (except for browse-to target pages, which still require Internet access).

(set-local-mode! "clojuredocs-snapshot-2011-12-03.txt")

You can switch back to web mode with (set-web-mode!) or show the current mode with (show-mode).

As a dependency:
