How to create an Index with quick loading pages?

Thanks in advance :).

I’m creating a tool for fiction writers that is essentially an emotion thesaurus with additional features not available in a static ebook. Once the user is at their dashboard and selects the “Entries” tool, I want them to be able to access the entries very quickly.

The Epub viewer SumatraPDF does what I’m envisioning. The attached photo shows a random ebook open in Sumatra. This is the kind of display I’m envisioning.

The entries are on the left, and the display panel is on the right. When a user clicks an entry, that entry’s contents display in the display panel.

Problem: I have no idea how to implement this.

I installed a sliding menu plugin, so that’s a start. Though I’d prefer if the page were made up of a persistent index and a panel to the right that changes based on what the user clicks.

Any help is greatly appreciated. :slight_smile:

Thanks!
