Install Drupal book on Coda

If like me, you are on a Mac and develop under Coda (software that I recommend by the way), here is a little tip that will surely help you. As you may have noticed, Coda has an integrated documentation of PHP language, but this one is offline. OK, it's cool, but we, Drupal developers would prefer to have API under the hook... wink

Wish exauced ! laugh

How to ? How to :

  • Open Coda if not already > Click on Books in display modes toobar
  • Click on the bottom left "+"
  • The fill in the form 

Book title: Drupal 6 API
Book URL: http://drupalcontrib.org/
Use for Mode: PHP-HTML
Search URL: http://drupalcontrib.org/api/search/6/*

and for the Cover image I found this one pretty:

Now where it gets interesting, it's that you can use a hotkey to open directly your book on a function: Command key icon + double click. Furthermore, you can search on external sites which provide documentation for third-party modules, like drupalcontrib.

This tip is possible for others languages and frameworks, like jQuery :
