You are just a click away from Go package documentation

Hi Gophers!

Do you struggle to find link to official Go package documentation while looking at the repository, not anymore!

I built a handy chrome web store extension to redirect from Go source code repositories to their official documentation 📄.

Trust me, it helps everyday. Try it now!

You can click the extension and GO!

Following repository hosts this extension. Feel free to contribute. I am open for suggestions. Give it a 🌟 if you liked it!

Now you are just a click away from official package documentation for Go repositories. DOCGO is a handy browser extension 🧱 to redirect from Go source code repositories to their official documentation 📄.

Why don't have a simple link in your favorite bar?

I don't understand the use case here. Do you mean having a favourite link to pkg.dev and modify it every time you want to see the documentation?

No, just have the link in your favorite bar. (When you check the little star to bookmark the link)
The plugin seems to always go to the same page

Yes, it goes to same page but different package documentation. Imagine you are researching something and come across multiple repositories. Will you bookmark all them?

If I really need them, yes. (Generally I will have one link and do searches from this one, I will have other bookmarks of the same site if I go regularly on particular pages)

As I understand your extension, when you click on your extension button and you are on a golang repo, you are redirected to the related documentation. When I'm working on a project, I not going to check their github repo, I'm directly on their doc. That's why I'm not understanding the usage.

It would be great if this was also a firefox addon :-)
