Searchable Rails API Docs?

Is there a version of the Rails API anywhere that is searchable?

The RDoc dump at api.rubyonrails.org is spiffy and all, but it can very difficult to use productively under many scenarios IMO.

gotapi.com, railsmanual.org, http://caboo.se/doc.html

I've always liked http://www.railsbrain.com

Try http://www.railsapi.org. There is even a place to add comments.

Yes, api.rubyonrails.org is not real documentation. It isn't even API
documentation, it's just Rdoc. Sometimes it gives enough information
to write code, sometimes not.

OK, thanks for the URLs. None are helping with my objective. They don't appear to search the actual contents of all those RDocs.

Get the chm version: http://delynnberry.com/projects/rails-chm-documentation

Then just open it on Winblows or use Chamonix on Mac (or a CHM viewer on Linux). Works extremely well for fulltext searches.
