🐶 ModdoC: A new way to read Documentation of Node Modules

We all use node modules in our projects, and we have to read their documentation over and over. But going on npm org and searching for a node module to read its documentation can waste a lot of time. So that's why we made MODDOC. It's a simple tool to read the node module's documentation easily.

Some Features

1. Open multiple projects at a time

2. Shows both dependencies and dev dependencies

3. Quick copy widget

4. In-app browser for external links

5. Offline access to Documentation

It's just a start, and with your help we can add more features to it and make it more awesome. The best part is that this tool is completely Open Source. So feel free to have a look, suggest features, find bugs or fix them.
