Based on the german “VGB-Abkürzungskatalog für die Kraftwerkstechnik” (VGB Abbreviationcatalogue for power plant technology) I built a tool for a company-internal tool to make the catalog searchable.
The tool is based on jQuery and the jQuery UI.
Data is formatted in json, alternatively it would work in XML too. Both are easily managable using a separate admin-page.
