A problem I run into frequently is that I'm happily browsing
documentation on rdoc.info, and I run into a class which has most
of its methods hidden from YARD.
To figure out how this class works, I need to read the source. I
look up at the top of the rdoc.info page, I see the source code's
filename... and in a spasm of optimism, I try to click it. My
clicks are in vain, however, since it's not a link; it's merely the
I've clicked that name in vain so many times.
After this, I curse a bit, and proceed to copy/paste the
filename in preparation to hunt down the file (which involves
inconvenient activities like searching github or rubygems.org, or
installing the gem just so I can 'cd' into its directory and view
It would be humayzing if that filename was clickable,
and just showed the source code in a new window. (Displaying the
code completely unhighlighted is totally acceptable, although line
numbers and colour would be nice too.)
Thanks for your time,
