One incredibly useful feature of Jupyter notebooks running the Python kernel is the ability to see function docstrings inside a tooltip that is displayed by pressing Shift-Tab after a method name and a left parenthesis. For example, if I want to see the docstring for
print(), I enter
print( into a cell and press Shift-Tab to see its docstring. I can also expand the size of the tooltip by pressing Shift-Tab twice and pin it to the browser window by Shift-Tab three times.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like this feature is available for viewing method javadocs in the scijava-jupyter-kernel. My questions are:
- Is there a fundamental reason why this feature is not present, i.e. is it somehow incompatible with Java-based kernels?
- Is it a planned feature for the scijava-jupyter-kernel?
I would be happy to help with its implementation, too, so if anyone could point out any resources for moving forward with this then I would be grateful.
