Resistor color codes in DuckDuckGo search results

DuckDuckGo_ResistorColorCodes

A couple of weeks ago we blogged about Joe Walnes’s http://resisto.rs/ website — a lightweight web app tool to look up resistor color codes. Well, he has integrated this tool into the DuckDuckGo search engine here. Check it out:

Here’s the code.
