bdog - A better bcat

bdog is a commandline utillity written in nodejs. Its functionality is inspired by bcat by Ryan Tomayko, which is a cat utillity for the browser.

I always liked the ability to stream logfiles, json responses or whatever output I came accross inside a terminal to my browser window. The only thing I was always missing was a more sophisticated view inside the browser (eg. Syntax highlighting, JSON data as an unfoldable tree structure, animation highlights if new lines are recieved.). That's why I decided to hack together bdog. As with cat and dog, bdog is supposed to be a better bcat.

Current status

The basic implementation currently ready mimics most of bcats basic behaviour. Therefore it can be used as a drop in replacement in most situations currently. The application architecture allows for easy integration of advanced views and all the graphical stuff I would like in the future. Currently none of those are implemented. They will follow as soon as I got some more spare time.
