Node Server Application for managing and maintaining offline documentation.
** This is barely out of the oven, provided as is with ZERO guarantees, MIT license **
Offline Docs are better, they're faster and you don't have to deal with w3fools.com et al polluting your search results, but managing them can be a pain in the behind. Here's where DocServer comes in, tell it where the docs at and it'll keep it organised by:
- programming language
- library name
At present DocServer can use the following sources:
- fetch an online .zip file
- mirror an online directory using wget as the backend
- copy from a local directory
npm install -g node-docserver
nodeDocServer, it should be on your path.

Go Hog Wild!
Click the top right button to start downloading a new doc. Enter the details of your docs and then click to start. Here's some examples:
This is brand new, excessively so. All file operations are done without admin privileges, and when used as intended will only operate within ~/.node-docserver. If you mess up your install, just delete that folder and you can start again. Currently the app is limited to localhost only as there isn't a shred of input validation going on.
Only used in Ubuntu, send me trip reports on other platforms!
- Quick Switcher implemented.
- Docs can now be deleted from home page (deleting them in ~/.node-docserver as well)
- Version directories no longer prefixed with 'v'.
- tar.gz file support added.
