After playing Thaumcraft lately and using ythri's Research Helper I found the drop-down boxes for aspect input annoying as I can never remember the name of the aspect. So I tried creating my research helper as a little project.
The main input differers from ythri's as you simply click on the aspect icon (left for first and right for second). There is also a steps selector to change the minimum number of steps that the algorithm will consider. It is coded in Java so should run for everyone who plays Minecraft. Any new ideas/feedback are of course welcomed.
