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:

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

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!
