Or you use the com.sun.star.script.theServiceDocumenter, which comes with
LibreOffice since 5.1, like so (StarBasic example):

  TheServiceDocumenter = GetDefaulftContext().getValueByName("/singletons/com.sun.star.util.theServiceDocumenter") # this should be simpler[1]

showServiceDocs shows you the service details about
UnoThingThatYouWhatToKnowMoreAbout by opening the relevant service page from
http://api.libreoffice.org/docs/idl/ref/index.html in your browser.
showInterfaceDocs shows you everything you can do with this service by opening
the links of all interfaces it implements in your browser. Not though for
something like "ThisComponent" in Writer this might be quite a lot.

So as you see, no need to install extensions to simply find out what an UNO service
is and what it provides in LibreOffice. ;)
