Simple is simple. It does view man pages, but none of the display features work. Can't change font, type, size or color.I'm looking for something that displays the manual pages better than the terminal, not just duplicates it in a window.
Cool simple man viewer
Nice to have a free man page viewer that is being maintained. However, I'm sticking with ManOpen for now because I find it more efficient to open a particular page.A few things would really Man Viewer, in my opinion. Speed up launch (even reading from cache takes many seconds to build the list). Start with the cursor in the search box and make cmd-F put the cursor in the search box. Select a best match in the list as one types in the search box and have open that best match. Then one could open the app, type the desired item and and it would be displayed. Saves many steps.
Two bracketed returns were elided from last two sentences, making it look like nonsense (why, oh why can't we edit our entries?). The final suggestion was that the return key should open the best match that is selected in the list. Thus one could open the application, type the desired item, type return, and it would open. Much more efficient than clicking or typing tab to get to the search field, typing to limit the items shown in the list, then clicking on the desired item in the list.
This is really nice. Very comprehensive. Would be even nicer with customisable fonts. Thanks.
This is probably the best man page viewer I've used so far. Clean interface and well organized. Well implemented sorting and filter feature. Best of all it's free!
