I made a small web-based SSH client to play Nethack. With the ?retro=true param, you can have a nice old-school terminal style.

You can access it here https://nethack.glitch.me/?retro=true

By default, it’s connecting to nethack.alt.org (NAO) server, but there’s the ?host=...&user=... param so you can connect to anywhere else, for example, to Hardfought server: https://nethack.glitch.me/?host=hardfought

If you’re interested, you can access the source code (ugly POC style) here https://glitch.com/edit/#!/nethack

    I get this. Took a quick look at the inspector, but it revealed nothing of use—I guess the rendering is done all in js, and I don’t care to look any further. This is in firefox on linux; in chrome, the text is legible, though ugly.

      hey, thanks for trying. by any chance you blocked something like webfont in your browser? the rendering is done by the xterm.js library btw.

        No glitches, but this is basically unreadable

        Slightly off topic: That “striped” pattern on the background causes migraines in people like me. (it’s the stripes, not movement or anything)
