ajaxWM is a window manager in a web browser, a terminal emulator and an SSH proxy. The project allows remote controlling a computer even when there is a firewall and packet analyzer between, blocking everything else than HTTP(S)-connections.

Because the ajaxWM client runs in any javascript-capable web browser, you can even use it when you are not allowed to install any software, for example in an internet café, at school, or at work.

Here are some key features of "ajaxWM":

window manager
ˇ Simulates a desktop environment

terminal emulator
ˇ The windows of the client are usable like most other terminals in a "normal" window manager

ˇ Runs in any modern javascript-capable graphical browser. Supports the most common SSH clients (OpenSSH and Dropbear)

ˇ Three different profilers (profile, cProfile, and hotshot) and two output modes (KCacheGrind and pStats)

ˇ The theme-engine was written with flexibility in mind. You can create themes that draw fancy borders (images) around the windows, display the titlebar below the windows content and much more. Theres almost no limitation!

it's fast
ˇ ajaxWM uses psyco, which compiles python-code, if it's available

resource management
ˇ The server supports limiting the amount of sessions and windows

ˇ Parses the code of the client to reduce its size and enable/disable and remove debuging routines which speeds up transfer time. Responses are gzip-compressed but can also be send uncompressed.


ˇ Python
ˇ Psyco (optional)

What's New in This Release:

ˇ This release ignores unknown characters in escape sequences. Compatibility for Python < 2.5 has been fixed.
