That would be me.
And there already is an API. How else ? This is Free Pascal !
If you look in the browser developer console when using that page,
you'll see there are 2 calls available which do return JSON.
for dropdown completion:
q is the query parameter. m=1 requests metadata. m=0 omits metadata.
For actual search there is
again, search term is in 'q'. m has the same meaning.
The JSON is straightforward.
But I will document the API.
