Day 37 — A rustup doc for Python!01 October 2020 · recurse-center Tweet
When I was trying to learn Rust (I need to get back :( ) some weeks ago, I really liked how I was able to install every tool I needed to write Rust with just one
curl command! I also loved the
rustup doc command which opened the docs for my installed Rust toolchain in the browser!
Today I wanted to look at docs for the
ctypes module from the Python standard library. So I went to a search engine which directed me to docs for Python 2.7 :(
I've been facing this problem for some time now, so I made
python-doc (similar to
rustup doc) to open docs for any Python standard library module for my installed Python version in the browser!
$ python-doc -m ctypes
-w option to that command opens the docs on docs.python.org. I also want to add options to open the tutorial, what's new, packaging, and other sections of the docs with
--packaging etc. (similar to
rustup doc --book). And a GitHub action to make weekly releases to PyPI!
Search engines can't direct me to Python 2.7 docs anymore!
