I'm extremely happy with Dash. Its constantly open and find it very useful when developing a new web app or site. I'm having great difficulty finding anything wrong with it or a feature it "might" be missing as all the info I need is in one place. Much thanks to the developer!

I've personally been reluctant to stick my snippets in this tool because I'm not crazy about having them locked in a proprietary db format that I can't look at in a web browser from any machine. So, I've been using gist on github. I would love to see Gist integration. I'm also mostly doing ios development and I personally find dash does little more than the existing docset, in fact I find it does less. I've been using appkido for docsets. Not pretty but it gives you much more power to jump around the docset.

Just a note: the snippets database is a very simple SQLite database. It's definitely not easily accessible (you need a SQLite app), but it's not locked or proprietary.

I'd love to hear more about which aspects you found lacking in Dash. If you have some time, please drop me an email at http://kapeli.com/contact.

Thanx for answering my concerns. I didn't realize the snippets were accessible in sqlite format. Perhaps some sort of export/import function might be convenient. I'm going to try out the snippets manager then and see if I can get into it.

This is THE BEST documentation browser. Period. With the makeover with 1.82 + the new Alfred2 integration the best got better.

Tip: If you thought the 'old HUD was ugly... try it again. Get Dash out of your Dock and into the menubar.. and: Use the Alfred or Terminal integration. It's GREAT.

Things like: (open Alfred) 'dash php:(what you want)'

or

'dash write' ..(all write command to all languages that you have loaded).

Dash is pretty darned scary. We need more of this, please.

This is the best documentation browser I've come across so far. Very useful. Wishing it was easier to roll your own docsets, though, or that there were more available.

Please drop me an email if you have any ideas on how to improve docset generation. This is one of my top priorities, but I haven't found a solution yet...

Note to users: the screenshots shown on MacUpdate are out of date. For the latest screenshots, check out the App Store. I can't change the ones here (MacUpdate error).

Best Snippets Manager & Documentation Browser for me. Handiest & easiest Documentation Browser / Viewer for many scripting and programmng languages. Easy Snippets triggering feature. But: it is NOT FREE! To get rid of the »Pinky« nag screen that sometimes appears, you’ll have to buy the »Pinky-Free« version ($15.99 on Devs homepage / $19.99 in AppStore as of 07/10/2012) via in-app-purchase. Or get version 1.6.1, which is lacking the »Pinky-Feature« ;-)

Dropped support in 1.6.9 for Mac OS X 10.6.8 to hide icon from Dock. Couldn’t revert updating. Any chance to download 1.6.8 again?
