Reference tool, browse Cocoa documentation.

Overview

AppKiDo is a free reference tool for Cocoa Objective-C programmers. The goal of AppKiDo is to help you find what you want in the Cocoa documentation. It does this by parsing the header files and the HTML doc files that were installed with your Developer Tools, and presenting the results in a form that is easy to navigate. AppKiDo can search for names of classes, protocols, functions, types, and constants. Searches are by substring, not keyword. So, for example, if you're wondering how to manage cursors, search for "cursor". Apple has conveniently put the word "cursor" in the names of most things related to cursors.

AppKiDo presents the class hierarchy in a browser view. If you are new to Cocoa, browse the class hierarchy to get acquainted with what's there and how it's organized. If you are more experienced, you can study branches of the hierarchy you never paid attention to before. AppKiDo provides handy "quicklists" of logically related groups of classes. This puts many frequently used classes a click or two away. AppKiDo can display a consolidated list of all methods a class implements, including inherited methods and methods that satisfy a protocol. This can help you understand the complete behavior of a class. Scanning through a consolidated list is more convenient than browsing a class's superclasses and protocols one at a time. AppKiDo can open the .h file for any Cocoa class. Theoretically you shouldn't need to do this, but sometimes it comes in handy.

Does not work with Mountain Lion and Xcode 4. It assumes that dev tools will be inside a regular folder instead of a package, and so does not permit specifying /Applications/Xcode.app as the location for all materials that used to be located in /Developer. Any chance of this being fixed before the release of OS X 10.9?

Why does (almost) every freeware program has brushed windows, I'm getting tired of it.

I really hope Apple does two things: 1) Throw a nice sum of money at this developer. 2) Replace Xcode's documention feature with AppKiDo, extended to also cover Carbon and everything else. AppKiDo is lean, fast, well thought out and immensely useful. Xcode's documentation system badly needs all of these. Apple, please don't skip step 1 !!!

Couldn't live without it. Still much better than XCode 2 integrated doc/class browser. Now I would like some sort of spotlight search :-)

Nice application and very good support from Andy Lee. I'll just be happy to have a search field directly in the toolbar like Mail.app in complement of the new search dialog box. Anyway, congratulation to author for this very use full tool.

Truly excellent!! The developer added exactly what I missed: Webkit and addressbook frameworks and "Remember window layout". Much better than CocoaBrowser and DocoaBrowser, It really helps understanding and using cocoa. The developer should be paid by Apple for doing this ;) Continue the good job!
