Create a PHP Documentation Bookmarklet
Most PHP programmers I know (including myself) visit the PHP function reference daily, if not hourly. Going to http://php.net/
Just drag this link to your browser’s bookmark bar. Now, when you click on it, you’ll be prompted to enter a function name. Hit enter, and you’ll be automagically taken to the correct PHP reference page.
But we’re not done yet! If you’re using Apple’s Safari browser we can even do this without using the mouse. Press command + <1…9> to jump straight to a specific bookmark. For example, command+3 will jump to the 3rd bookmark listed in your bookmark bar. So, stick our PHP bookmarklet in a 1 – 9 spot and you can do lookups without ever taking your hands off the keyboard.
var func = prompt("Enter a PHP function", "date");
prompts the user to enter a function name to lookup. In this example I’ve also given the prompt a default value of “date” since that is the function I visit most often. You can leave that field blank or fill it in with your own value.
The second line
window.open('http://php.net/' + func);
tells the browser to go to http://php.net/ followed by the value you entered.
