Brunton Power Calculator App

Ben Buie | 3/20/14

This project got me out of my comfort zone a little bit. Another developer had done some of the initial design for this app and then it was handed off to me to re-write it for a significantly different design. Wading through the code was a little intimidating, but I figured it out and delivered a great product. This app was so successful we used it to make a kiosk iPad app and revised it for the mobile site as well.

One challenge we had with this project is that it had to be build in Shopify, meaning that we couldn’t use a database to store the different options. We decided to use a JSON array to store and edit the data and to build both the selection and recommendation pages.
