RubySearch Dash Widget for Dashboard
RubySearch Dash is a widget for Dashboard in MacOS X. This widget provides you a dictionally for querying the local ruby documents which installed via RDoc by working as a front end of ri command.
This widget is based on great and nice widget RubySearch from Brian Guthrie. I already sent the patch to Brian and he may post newer version of RubySearch in a few days.
Follows are new features added to RubySearch: * Fix the flicking when turn to backside. * Fix a something bad when we resizing this widget. * Find with shorter name. You can find the ActiveRecord::Base.find with only capital charactors like “AR::Base.find”. * Support versionized documents with gems. * You can add the version to end of method name like “AR::Base::find-1150” to find in ActiveRecord 1.15.0 * This problem is actually not in RubySearch but in ri command itself. * ri could not decide which versions’ document to show because of finding with only method and module/class name (different versions has same namespace and method name) * Tweak icon and add Japanese resources :)
