Everyone who’s “in the market for a terminal built on web technologies”, please raise your hand…

No doubt I’ve missed something important, but what?

It just means if you’re looking for a modern terminal….

If you might want to access a text based application from Linux on a remote network with a web server to provide access in this manner you might use this. Most young’uns wouldn’t know there’s trilliions of lines of code apps running out there that still manage huge petabytes of data all in text mode. IRS, Healthcare, lots of places. What I hate about articles on “Terminal Emulation” is they only deal with one emulation. VT100 compatible. If you want to write a true Terminal Emulator, emulate some terminals and do ADDS, IBM3090, or some other useful things instead of kiddie stuff.

Erpitt, if you want ADDS, IBM3090 or whatever, and think there’s a need to emulate them, go ahead and write a terminal emulator that meets your needs. The VT100 was very successful, and for a good reason.
