The goal of this project was to recreate the Planar Mechanism Kinematic Simulator (PMKS), a legacy, open-source web application, on a modern web platform with an enhanced user experience. The conversion included support for multiple browsers and improvements to the graphical user interface. A user interface is effective when it improves the overall experience of the user. This application was developed using the latest technologies in web development, such as HTML5 and Typescript, according to the standards of the World Wide Web Consortium. Through multiple evaluations testing the interface and functions, we were able to create a similar application to PMKS that has an improved user interface experience.
