To install this package, run in Emacs:

M-x package-install RET devhelp RET

Full description

In this unfortunate world, many documentations are using various HTML based format, instead of using the excellent text-based formats like Texinfo and Info format. This makes integrating of these manuals with Emacs hard, although not impossible.

This package make tries to integrate one of those stupid formats, Devhelp, with Emacs.

1 Usage

M-x devhelp and you are good to go. But you use a system that isn't FHS (Filesystem Hierarchy Standard) compliant, then you would need to change it. For example, you have to put the following in the init file for GNU Guix:

(setq devhelp-search-directories
      '("/run/current-system/profile/share/doc/"
	"/run/current-system/profile/share/gtk-doc/html/"
	"~/.guix-profile/share/doc/"
	"~/.guix-profile/share/gtk-doc/html/"))

You can also bookmark pages, with the standard bookmark-set function.

2 Installation

Devhelp isn't available on any ELPA right now. So, you have to follow one of the following methods:

2.1 Quelpa

(quelpa '(devhelp :fetcher git
		  :url "https://codeberg.org/akib/emacs-devhelp.git"))

2.2 Straight.el

(straight-use-package
 '(devhelp :type git
	   :repo "https://codeberg.org/akib/emacs-devhelp.git"))

2.3 Manual

Download the devhelp.el file and put it in your load-path.
