some weeks ago, i've updated
the docs in order to link all commands, but i don't think these have ever been published.
well, it doesn't matter anymore, because now there's this userscript for chrome (runs natively, but it's a bit unreliable) and firefox (requires greasemonkey
). it will link all nsis commands to the scripting reference, while you're browsing the winamp forums or the nsis wiki.
unfortunately, this is a rather primitive script and i'd love to improve it over the time. the main problem is probably the current documentation. it works fine for offline use, but it could be better for online use.
to improve the situation, i think it'd be better to have a wiki page for each nsis command or anchors using the command-name rather than ever changing chapters. this allows better linking of commands, which will ultimately improve the script, the linking situation on the forum and will presumably produce better google hits. i'm willing to create wiki entries for each command, i'm not sure if it's desired by the nsis maintainers (let's discuss this!)
anyway, until there's a new nsis version available, the script should work fine.
and reload this page to see it working on thisexample:
MessageBox MB_OK "We got a function!"
i'm planning to add some common macros, as well as plugins and functions from the nsis wiki. until then, i'm happy about all kinds of feedback!
