A node.js based REST API for Nihongo Resources data

Note: this is the API tester page. For regular searching, you'll want to use nihongoresources.com.

This is a demonstrator page that uses the API hosted on this domain for searching through JMDict, KANJIDIC2, JMNedict and the nihongoresources giongo/gitaigo data. Searches use the same API routes that external services would use to get data (for demonstrator purposes, this page consumes the html routes, to get fully formatted search results). Search for something (english, romaji, hiragana, katakana, or kanji form is autodetected) to see the search results on the right. The fitler options don't work for everything; filtering word type in the kanji results won't do anything, for instance, and sorting on kanji form for giongo/gitaigo, which has no kanji form, is fairly meaningless.
