According to the feedback I got via IRC and jQuery’s mailing list, there are several people using my API browser (so far known as api-draft).
This feedback gave me the motivation to further improve the browser (including a few more plugins), and to create an official release.
The time has come: Link to jQuery API Browser
- Tabbed navigation
- Treeview on categories
- Quicksearch on both navigation and main content
- a vertical splitter that allows you to resize navigation/content panes
- highlighting selected methods in the content
- styled tooltips for method arguments
The issue with bookmarks is this: The first time you visit the browser, you can select any method and the location hash is properly updated. Once you bookmark the location, including the hash, and return to the site, it jumps to the correct method, but does not update the hash anymore on further navigations. This occurs in both IE and FF, Opera simply fails to jump to the correct method in the first place, but updates the hash on following clicks.
If you like the tool and want to use it in your daily jQuery development: there is a download link at the header of the browser.
Of course your feedback is still appreciated!
