I posted yesterday about R Help tooltips. I have started to use them e.g. on the graph gallery

However, I’m quickly frustrated with having to write the full url, i.e if I want to add a link to the help page for the pacf function in stats, I need to find this link:

pacf

Note here that the pacf function is documented in the acf.html file.

I then modified the tooltip plugin so that links like these get the tooltip

pacf

And the plugin finds the correct link, set it to the href attribute, and enable the tooltip

Some examples: pacf, barchart
