ROS package for 4-DOF Arm

I am looking at making my own 4 DOF arm. I see that there was a package "move_arm" that handled motion planning and servo control for an arm, that was made for ROS Groovy.

Would there be any modern options that exist? If not, where should I get started when trying to make something that handles the IK and motion planner?

move_arm was part of arm_navigation, which has long since been deprecated.

Its (spiritual) successor is moveit.

This looks very promising and a great place to start! Thanks a ton! I'll definitely continue reading through it now.
