new member, solar position app?



My name is Aren.



I am hoping to develop an app that will let me enter the required information on the website below, so as to return solar angles.  After entering this info, the user would be given the output from the website in text format.  Since I don't know much about programming, I am not sure what development tools I should go about using to start this.  Can anyone point me in the right direction?  At some point, I would like to save a list of different locations that can be selected in a dropdown for quick reference.


here is the website:
