Good App, Could Use a Few More Features

Not a bad alternative to reading man pages from the Terminal interface, or reading them in Vim or Emacs. Competes with the free untility Man Viewer which has two features that I wish Man Reader would consider implementing: tabs and the ability to add a path to the Man Path. Both the above features would make it close to ‘perfect’. All in all though a good stable utility for system admins, developers or anyone else curious enough to read man pages on OSX.

Great Idea & Well Executed

What a fantastic app. Will help me learn what is availabe and navigate through related pages. One thing that threw me at first: I’m used to searching for flags like -s . If you do this, you get no results unless you escape the dash: \-s It’d be great if -s would work, either by default or via a Preference option. Wish I had something like this on the Raspberry Pi, Cent OS, etc. side.

Handy

Nice to have a separate viewer for man pages besides Terminal. Basic, no fluff. And the sections dropdown and search are useful for finding those tools I used months ago, but can't quite remember the name of it.

Great Application

David Sheeks's Review of Man Reader

Reviewed on 11/23/20 12:55 PM

This is a nice, inexpensive application well worth looking at. It provides a clean and simple front end for man pages with some quick access features to jump to individual pages and sections and browse back / forward through previously viewed man pages. The UI could use a bit of work (the colors on the section tabs on the right are a bit ugly) but the application seems to work well and definitely adds value beyond to the command line interface (this from someone who works much of the time at a command prompt). Splitting panes in tmux sessions to view man pages will be much less common now. Update ideas: bookmarking, save notes associated with specific pages, search across man page content in addition to page names.
