Hi gnubg users,

I have ported GNU Backgammon to the web, replacing the GTK UI with a Javascript UI. You can see it hosted here: http://xenon.stanford.edu/~hwatheod/gnubg_web/gnubg_web.html

As of now, you have to enter moves manually, like "8/5 6/5". You can enter arbitrary gnubg command line commands, so nearly all the features of the original are available.

The project repository is here:

Some technical details: This was done by compiling gnubg's C source code into Javascript/Webassembly with Emscripten. A browser supporting Webassembly is required (the latest versions of most modern browsers do).

Any comments, suggestions, contributions are appreciated!
