It’s no surprise that you may need to work with different programming languages, or at least use many methods. You may not be sure how to call a method, how many parameters it has, or what type of object is used for each parameter. During these cases, having a quick way to search the API documentation helps immensely.
There are many ways to look up issues in the official API documentation for different languages. However, I have found two applications which are much easier than anything else I have tried. These tools can help you access the documentation with very few keystrokes.

There may be some cases when something may be missing from these doc sets, but in most cases, they are very helpful.
