Awesome AJAX web-based telnet application
I also talked about the fact that it wasn’t really an interactive terminal.
Fast forward to today, where the Mike Bergsma leaves the following sleeper comment:
Did it. VT200 emulation. Pure AJAX. SSL It was difficult to say the least. It launches with a CGI script, or it is downloadable.
It’s a comment of understated magnificence. One in the same vein as Fermat’s famous, “I have a truly marvelous proof of this proposition which this margin is too narrow to contain.”
Mike has implemented a web-based telnet application, including support for VT200 terminal emulation. Mike provides a guest account on his server to test with. I was able to log in, navigate around the system, get colorful directory listings, use hotkey shortcuts, and even execute heavyweight applications such as VI and Emacs.
