The completion suggestion system in v0.1.4 is very good.

Crazy ideas with 0 regard for reality follow:

Currently my non-wat way to find the docs I'm looking for is to use dmenu on my file of since-forever browser history which probably contains the docs I want. Typing into dmenu fuzzy-matches against lines in the file, narrowing them down. Once I see what I was looking for, I hit Return.

What I'm saying is that fuzzy-matching in wat would overkill my current documentation-searching workflow. It would mean going curses though… Have you considered this at some point?

@dthree
tks
Wow - never heard of dmenu. I'm assuming X is OSX?
I'm not running Mac - could you throw in a screenshot or GIF of what that looks like?
I can totally do fuzzy matching - however I don't know why we'd need blessed for that. You mean so it can pull up an autocomplete window?
dc
@dthree
I wouldn't really want to install blessed, just because it's a lot of code and I'm trying to make wat as lightweight as possible.

By X they mean the X Window System for Linux. It launches as an input bar at the top of the screen with items listed below.
dmenu animation
I know fairly little about terminal UI stuff. Is it possible to do that kind of thing sanely without curses?
(I agree it's good to avoid blessed if possible.)

@dthree
Let me think about this :)

Sweet: Node 4.0's entire API is now based on markdown files!
Time to add node's files to config: 8 minutes
Time to download and build entire docset: 10 seconds
:D :D :D

Hey guys! Sorry for the unexpected entry! I came across Wat on GH and I have to say, I LOVE the idea! I would like to help out more hands on (rather than simply spreading the word), if at all possible. I've reviewed the issues, as well. I am not the most spectacular coder, as that is what I am working on now, but I'm super determined and I love to learn. If you guys need/would admire additional help, I'm all ears. Cheers guys, and happy coding! :smile:
dc
@dthree
Hey man. Thanks and I appreciate it!
I'd love help. The main major thing I'm working on before release is adding a ton of libraries, and QCing the library parsers for any problems.
Right now, any and all docs that are based on Markdown can be added with no further coding. So one easy target is hunting down popular open source libraries that a ton of people use, and adding them as doc sets.
I'm working on HTML doc parsers now, to open up major libraries, so once I fine tune that, adding even more doc sets should be easy.
Lastly, it might not seem like much, but what I'm lacking more than anything is feedback on features. It actually matters a ton. This is all in my head, but I'm building it for the community, so I need to know what the community is thinking.

@naltun
Cool, man! Sorry, I'm finishing my last week at my current job and have been busier than usual. To be finished tmrw though ;)
Sure, I'd love to get some docs added and test it more thoroughly and provide the feedback!
I'll start working on it tomorrow, and Tuesday I go on vacation for two and a half weeks... Upon return, I'd love to continue more properly. :smile: I hope that's okay?
dc
@dthree
Sure, totally okay! Thanks!

Howdy guys. So I've a question; how would I understand whether a README doc is displaying the full API for the software? I know what an API is in regards to something like the Twitter API, but when people say "the api of language x", I get rather lost. Could someone explain this for me? After this it'd be easier to understand whether a certain document is good for adding to the libraries list. :+1:
dc
@dthree
An API is simply a listing of all of the public commands the library exposes.
For an analogy, the dashboard of a car, with its wheel, radio, and gauges, could be considered the API of a car.
A lot more is going on under the hood, but you don't need to know those things. The data you need and the controls you need are publicly exposed to you in the front seat.
An API is the same thing, except for a library or language.
Here's an API example for vorpal, the library wat is built on:
Those are all of the public commands for controlling the CLI.

This would be a good example of a page wat would load. Wat can figure out which of those things listed are properties, and which are methods, and breaks it up as such.

Does this make some sense?
Noah
@naltun
This makes more sense, yeah. Actually, the car analogy is quite good. So the API is sort of like the documentation? It explicitly details the use of the language?
If so, then that makes more much sense.
dc
@dthree
Yeah - you got it!
Noah
@naltun
How's work on the project going? I'm still on vacation, but I've been giving Wat some thought. ;) Very exciting stuff.
dc
@dthree
:)
It's been really busy lately, so haven't had a chance to work on it. I'll get some time soon enough though!
Noah
@naltun
Would you like for me to couple as many additions to autodocs.json as possible in a pull request, or make individual requests per addition?
dc
@dthree
individual is a good idea. I'll get to them soon!
Noah
@naltun
Howdy. What's up dthree?
