DuckduckBang productivity

I've been using DuckDuckGo for privacy reasons, but now I've actually found a real productivity upside with it.

As a developer I spend a lot of time read docs from different libraries and softwares. bang shortcuts makes that smooth and simple. If I want to search for a npm package I just write !npm algolia-places-react and DuckDuckGo will redirect that search query directly to npm:

Bang search example

There's over 13 000 different bangs so you can be sure that your favorite sites can be found, just go ahead and check the list at https://duckduckgo.com/bang

How are you doing to quickly find docs for the software you're using?
