I’ve just started using Emacs for PHP development and the first thing I wanted to do was to browse the official PHP documentation directly from within Emacs.
I know that a couple of existing PHP modes claim to offer documentation browsing, but as far as I’ve seen they merely open a browser and point to the main documentation page, where all searches are performed.
I needed something more powerful and this is why I edited an existing Emacs tool originally developed for Erlang documentation, adapting it to PHP.
The code is released under GNU GPLv3 license and it’s available for download at my BitBucket page:
Please note that this tool doesn’t prevent you from using any other pre-existing php-mode in conjunction with it.
