Manner - Terminal manual as PDF

September 13, 2009


The transition of the Jamoma repositories to GIT still requires learning. I find the online Pro Git book by Scott Chacon to be really useful, and I look forward to having it in print as well.

But I also find myself scavenging the terminal man pages for git. Terminal might not be the perfect interface for reading documentation. Enter Manner, a simple application turning man pages into PDFs.

The only thing to be aware of is that to access e.g. the manual page for the git pull command you have to write it into Manner as git-pull (observe the hyphen).
