Right-click to explain commands...That's what's next.

With a foundation of explanations established, we are now looking to bring kmdr more seamlessly into different development workflows. A browser extension will allow users to quickly check what all of the attributes of a command do before copying to the terminal.

kmdr being in the terminal is particularly handy for those testing their memory of options or getting help via irc; however, developers are also finding new commands on their browsers via sites like Stack Overflow or in a project's online documentation. The kmdr web extension is for devs in a “research session” within their browser, who value time over tabs and want concise and accurate explanations of a command ASAP.

The two-steps-away vision is the ability to select a command from anywhere in your browser and right-click for access to the kmdr description.

The first milestone in the web-extension will be the ability to share kmdr descriptions via a URL provided by the CLI client. Users will be able to send and bookmark the URL of a kmdr description which will be rendered as an orphaned web page.
