Thanks a lot for your advice! :D
I'll look for the best way to create this html index.

I am intrigued. Does not lovelydocs allow you to download docsets from the “user contribution” site?
The reason I ask is that they have they the latest available docset (lc9dp10).

No, Lovely Docs shows only the main repository

Is that because it is the free version.i noticed they have a pro version but apart from allowing more docsets I do not know what it offers. I haven’t found the develop’s website to clarify. If it can’t access the user contribution site it is a real bummer as there are a lot of them...

Where could I download the archive: LiveCode.tgz?

I could try to drop this file into the docset folder
of the android app "Lovely Docs" to learn if the
app recognizes the .tgz archive as a new docset.

I wish I knew. Reading on the Dash website, the developers for other platforms are required to work with the Dash developer to ensure compatibility. Given one of the major selling points was the ability to access the user contributions I am perplexed as to why ‘lovelydocs’ can’t. You might need to write to the lovelydocs developer to find out how or if it can be done.

Given that author website is unavailable, creating an html index would be faster. :)
