Search Links

The context action command is a perfect way to let geany open a browser for you to search for the documentation about the actually selected keyword or function. Unfortunately there is often no documentation on websites which show how a URL request needs to be build to search the API directly. Directly in this case means, get a search result as if you entered the searched word on the website's search engine yourself. Most of the time you have to look at the page source to figure out the correct parameters for the URL request.

This page lists prepared search links/context actions which you only need to copy and paste in your filetpye configuration file:
