New website announcement: abbreviation dictionary

By Dmitry Kann 1 min read This post in Russian 0381

I’ve made a simple online service for looking up Dutch abbreviations and their English translations.

Please meet!

The website.
The website.

You can search abbreviations with or without punctuation, the results will be the same. You can also search the text or the translation.

The lookups are performed on-the-fly, without a page reload.

And if you’re curious what the new website’s domain name means, you can also find it there: afk.

There’s also a complete Russian section available.

Implementation details

The website is built using the same Hugo engine as the website you’re reading this on. The single-page application uses jQuery and Bootstrap.

The entire source code of the service is available on GitHub.

This webapp employs HTML 5 history API, which makes it possible to navigate back and forth through your searches using the and browser buttons. ■
