Hi all,

I'm writing a plugin which integrates Devhelp documentation browser into 
Geany (similar to Anjuta).  The code is currently on my github site:


It's working quite well as is, but I can think of some more things to 
improve it.  It kinda mangles Geany's notebook layout a fair bit and I'm 
not sure what the repercussions of this are (if any) although I'm fairly 
satisfied with the results.

It also adds a menu item on the editor's context menu to look up the 
current symbol/tag in the built-in devhelp, which is a nice feature 
(thanks to b4n for suggesting this on IRC).

Obviously it requires having the Devhelp libraries installed as well as 
WebKit GTK.

If anyone has any feedback (especially opinions about the way it lays 
out the UI), I would very much appreciate hearing it.  If you don't want 
to install it, there's a screen shot in the repository:


Thanks for your time,

Matthew Brush (codebrainz)
