The documentation for decorators (for methods and classes) is pretty lacking.

Searching for "decorator" ( ) brings up a lot of libraries that use decorators, but no documentation explaining what they are and how they work. The documentation should have a dedicated page for explaining decorators, and this should be the 1st search result.


In the meantime, then search should give as a 1st result a link to the definition of decorator in the glossary:

Actually, it seems that there is no way to directly link to a paragraph in the glossary - so that should be added as well.

In general, it would be nice if a search for some term X would show as a 1st result the definition of X in the glossary (if it exists there).
