Many tools and libraries exist to build powerful web medical visualizers but the learning curve can be steep for new comers. This project aims to provide simple interfaces for AMI .
Simple JS interface
A collection of modular web components  (via Polymer ) that people can cherry pick to easily build their own web medical visualizer.
Why Polymer? (and not React  or Angular )
Because Polymer is meant to disappear!
Polymer adds very little 'sugar' on top of the web standards. It mostly adds support for some features that are not available yet on some platforms. Once all browser vendors implement the standards, the Polymer library that aims to poly-fill all the gaps will disappear. Accessibility is also very important: one can use web components in its app no matter which framework is used. Using React/Angular-based elements from another framework is not necessarily possible. Low maintenance cost (not tied to a specific version of a specific library). Beautiful ecosystem for development, testing and distribution.
- and it is a Google backed project!
