Python Documentation: Search Python documentation with suggestions and define functions

Recommended Posts

Hi all,
This is an Alfred v2 workflow to search the online Python documentation. It loosely emulates the behavior of the (javascript-based) Sphinx search function of the site.
Download v1.0 and import into Alfred v2.

  • py [your search string] - search in the online Python documentation
    • the Python3 documentation is available with py3
    • selecting an item will open the corresponding documentation page, highlighting the search string
    • you can quicklook the documentation without leaving Alfred with ⌘Y


  • modifier keys
    • cmd - returns a succinct definition for function entries from the local pydoc (Python 2 only)​
    • fdopen_doc.png?raw=true
    • ctrl - forcibly rebuild the local index​


  • tab-completion
  • list module contents


  • fuzzy logic
