emacs-helpful 0.17 More contextual information in Emacs help
helpful is an alternative to the built-in Emacs help that provides much more contextual information.
Show the source code for interactively defined functions (unlike the built-in Help).
Fall back to the raw sexp if no source is available.
Show where a function is being called.
Docstrings will Highlight the summary (the first sentence), include cross-references, hide superfluous puncuation.
Show you the properties that have been applied to the current symbol. This provides visibility of features like edebug or byte-code optimisation.
Provide a separate
helpful-commandfunction to view interactive functions.
Display any keybindings that apply to interactive functions.
Trace, disassemble functions from inside Helpful. This is discoverable and doesn't require memorisation of commands.
