Just wondering if anyone has used websockify. I noticed that, by default it comes with a telnet client. It seems promising as its encrypted and flexible. It does require you to run a server to translate WebSocket <-> TCP. I think it's a small price to pay for every MUD being able to talk with a web browser.
It looks like it would do a similar thing to Phudbase-webmud. I'm not sure why that didn't really catch on as it seems like a neat idea. I believe IRE use code from both websockify and phudbase in their latest web client.
