BeHappy is a HTML documentation browser for the BeOS system. It displays a list with some links, or an index, and a HTML view. When you click on an item in the list, the item's description appear in the HTML view. Take a look at the screenshots to see BeHappy in action with the BeBook.

What are BeHappy's main features?

  • The list and the HTML view are in the same window. No need to keep on swapping between two different windows!
  • BeHappy can adapt itself to a new version of the documentation. If you download a new BeBook, just click on update, and BeHappy's links and index are automaticaly updated!
  • Add-on support lets you browse any HTML documentation! Why not using BeHappy to browse the help files of your software?
  • With the BeBook, you can choose to have the class sorted by inheritance. That way, you can easily find all the functions one class inherits.

BeHappy is Mailware. Please tell me what you think of it, what you don't like, bug reports and what you think I should put in it.


  • BeHappy doesn't display the HTML views itself. It uses NetPositive to do this. NetPositive is written by Scott Barta, Peter Barrett, and Hiroshi Lockheimer. NetPositive isn't available here for download, but it is included in the BeOS distribution.
  • The BeBook belongs to Be Inc. and isn't available here for download either.
