Anyone out there who's better at Web Stuff than me know of, like, a javascript terminal emulator or something

I just want to make a website that shows what's running in a terminal real time, so people can watch builds scroll and whatnot

Ideally, I'd be able to ssh into a linux box, have screen running, and then the website would let you pick between which of the windows in screen you could watch

@BestGirlGrace perfect, this is exactly the sort of thing that you need. You may however need a basic websocket client I'm not sure it provides that. For testing purposes wscat is to websockets what netcat is to raw sockets

@BestGirlGrace oh and if you do have to go the route of writing the website part yourself, it's not that complicated + you can use this script to really pull it together erikosterberg.com/terminaljs/
You would just need to connect out to the websocket, and then print it with the functions that termina.js provides for printing to your web terminal
