Good list, there are way more tools than I expected.
Btw, if you want to add one, I made an FSD Mod Calaculator [www.rubberduckynetwork.com] for engineer upgrades.

Hi Cmdr,
EDCodex evolve with some new features to find more related content for ED

Last week-end done a new mod release on EDCodex in the toolbox section,
In addition of classic tools entries we added now some ships related pages to retrieve interesting content for each one.

The new mods consist on:
- a list of all ED Ships [edcodex.info] with some filters and basic data (using some json files from coriolis.io),
- a detailed page [edcodex.info] for each ship with related thread on reddit & videos on youtube (using API)
- direct links to fit each ships on existing ED fitting tool (coriolis, edshipyard & roguey).

We hope you will find this useful,
any feedback & suggestion to improve this little tool are welcome!

Awesome "wall of text" visualization of all the entries in EDCodex in the Tools section which atm contains 90 entries. Aside from that there are also three additional sections: threads, video and community websites/wikis. In total there are atm 184 entries. For those please visit the edcodex.info website.

Like biobob said, the edcodex.info website (no ads) provides far more functionality, like searching for a title or author, 19 RSS feeds, screenshots, filters, much more information about and entry.

Registered users have even more functionality. Two examples: favorites and personalized RSS feeds. They can also add new entries themselves to share with others. Since the release on the 17th of August, now approx 4 days ago 19 new entries have been entered by commanders and existing entries have been claimed by their authors and edited,enhanced. After all edcodex.info aims to be community driven.
