PageGauge

Quickly Assess Your Website's Usability: pagegauge.io

Background

PageGauge is a simple web tool to assess the usability of any website using automated analysis. It programmatically assesses various usability criteria and provides a "Usability Score" as an output. It was built in a ~1 day distributed hackathon, and is free and open-source.

Read more in our FAQs or learn how to run your own distributed hackathon in this post.
