Web-based Wabbitemu Frontend
« on: November 30, 2011, 04:34:27 pm »
As some of you might recall, I started a project for a web-based Wabbitemu frontend about a year and a half ago. I stopped working on it after maybe a couple weeks. Recently, I picked it up again. I've reworked it into being a standalone webserver to overcome a number of issues that were caused by the more full webservers. This also simplifies the means for transferring data from the emulator to the webserver considerably.

Link: http://-snip-:81/
Note that this is running on my desktop and may not be up consistently, nor is it perfectly stable.
I'll also have to ask you guys not to poke around with the server too much, it doesn't have the best of error handling.

ToDo List:
  • Allow variable/app uploading
  • Allow some sort of persistent saves, possibly through a user account system
  • Make the server more robust

Known bugs:
  • Opera tends to use high amounts of CPU with it
  • It's capped at 32 calculators. Any more than this will simply not load. I need to make it recycle old calculators or something.
  • IE

I'm planning on getting file/app uploading working on it, too.

I'll be posting the source code under whatever license Wabbit uses pretty soon, I just have a few things I want to clean up.

Awesome, Netham! Looks pretty awesome. And probably useful as well. You might easily integrate it on a website.

Done. Keys -should- be the same as wabbits keys.

Wow, that was fast O.O

And I just realized that you can just drag-and-drop the screen for an instant screenshot. Not sure if you meant for it to do that, but it's really convenient :D

And another thing: it sends a keypress only when the user releases a mouse key. That makes key repeat impossible (for the arrow keys and DEL). What about triggering on mouse down?

The way that keypresses are handled in the backend is awful. There's no queue or anything. Network latency also makes determining when the key was pressed/released near impossible.

That's too bad :/

Another thing: Ctrl works (ALPHA), but not Shift (2nd, CLEAR).

Wow, thank you Netham45!  It will be fun and convenient to use this!
There are people who can speak two languages, and they are called bilingual.  There are people who speak three languages and are therefore trilingual.  Then there are people who speak one language, and these people are called Americans.

So this is a C Wabbitemu backend with a JS/HTML frontend? :)

(I've actually found a C to JS compiler - a serious one called Emscripten. You might be able to have Wabbitemu all in a browser! :D I might try this...)

EDIT: You know what? I'm going to attempt this! :D Don't try it yet until I give up :P
