      This is a web-based tool for designing characters and patterns on the Burroughs B-7971 nixie tube and mapping them to port or shift register bit orderings. Designs are presented as decimal, hex, and binary values. Designs can be exported as C-code for incorporation into firmware or software for clock and four-letter-word style projects.

      All the code is available on GitHub.

      It was written by Luc Small.

      The code makes extensive use of JQuery, JQuery UI, JQuery Reverse Order plugin, and JQuery Sort Elements. Thanks to the developers of those great projects.
