Adding Solarus docset to Zeal

Zeal does not feature, by default, all the existing documentations. The less popular projects like Solarus are not present in the official docset list.

However, Zeal allows to add user-contributed docsets. One was made for Solarus. To install Solarus docset, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Zeal User-Contributions.
  2. Look for Solarus, and copy the XML url.
  3. In Zeal, click on Tools > Docsets... > Installed > Add feed.
  4. Paste the URL and click OK.
