mad(1) node.js pages
The node.js markdown documentation is now viewable in the terminal via mad(1):
mad list to see which pages are available:
If you already have
mad(1) installed simply run
mad --update to grab these new pages, and view with
mad node.http etc.
Express 3.x alpha reference docs
Since I don’t have the Express 3.x site up yet I thought I would whip up a quick set of markdown docs from the source comments using dox.
To view these markdown docs in your terminal install mad(1):
$ cd /tmp && git clone --depth 1 email@example.com:visionmedia/mad.git && cd mad && make install
Update your mad-pages:
$ mad --update
$ mad express
HINT: Press “/”, type and press enter to search. The keys
n move to the prev / next occurrences:
HINT HINT: There are also
mad(1) pages for Jade, HTTP status codes, errnos and others.
mad(1) is a tiny tool that allows you to view markdown manual pages. I’m a huge fan of
man in general, but the format is pretty annoying and often converted from markdown, textile etc anyway. The output
man produces is also pretty bad in my opinion, mainly whitespace issues.
This is just a quick 5 minute hack so follow if you’re interested or open an issue if you have some ideas! It would be great to allow customization of colors, formatting, blah blah. Here’s another screenshot:
