Zeal: Offline Documentation Browser


Zeal is a great tool for browsing documentation without the need for an internet connection.

As a great addition I can recommend zealusercontributions: https://zealusercontributions.now.sh

I love how fast it feels to browse the documentation, instead of wasting seconds after seconds waiting for some overloaded website to load.

I think the unfree MacOS tool Dash was there before, they also provide the docsets.

Zeal reminds me of the good old .chm file format: Microsoft Compiled HTML Help
