Webterm is a simple web-based terminal implementation with simple backend commands written in go-lang, built on top of the ace editor and jquery terminal. It's primarily meant as a proof of concept terminal backed by a go-lang web server.
The server is backed using a broadcast based backend for communicating and handling various commands. Broadcast is a redis-alike clone server which supports various communication protocols (line-by-line, redis or custom). webterm-broadcast will communicate as quickly as possible using this method from any number of clients. As a result, you can also access the server using webterm-cli
[email protected]$ webterm-broadcast  27 Jul 15 00:37 CDT # WARNING: no config file specified, using the default config  27 Jul 15 00:37 CDT # __ __ _ _____ / / / /____ ______ _ WebTerm 0.1.0 64 bit | |/|/ / -_) _ \/ __/ -_) __/ ' \ Port: 7337 |__,__/\__/_.__/\__/\__/_/ /_/_/_/ PID: 3571  27 Jul 15 00:37 CDT # setting read/write protocol to redis  27 Jul 15 00:37 CDT # listening for incoming connections on 127.0.0.1:7337
Commands available from the cli is exactly how the web terminal behaves. You can run the cli using the command below to test it out.
[email protected]$ webterm-cli 127.0.0.1:7337> cmds CAT Concatenate the contents of a file CMDS List of available commands supported by the server DIR Lists the files in the directory ECHO Echos back a message sent usage: ECHO "hello world" EDIT Edit the contents of a file INFO Current server status and information LS Lists the files in the directory PING Pings the server for a response SAVE Saves the contents of a file 127.0.0.1:7337>
webterm is our actual web server and this command is run from within the main directory of the repository. You can manually build this or run the command where the app directory sits. The result is a simple web based cli. The web-server is written in go-lang and leverages a few utilities I wrote including workclient (a service wrapper allowing you to configure the server to etcd, statsd...etc).
