Provides an ingame technology browser.

It is a simple help system. With H (configurable) you get to an item what it is made of and where it is needed. This works in a lot of different places. In the help system you can get more information about the items with one click.
There is also a history.

It is a tribute to the help system of Evospace. I hope factorio players will like it a lot as well.
The remidor panel is inspired by the one from Satisfactory.
