HiThere! This is pretty old and I haven't reviewed the code or approach but probably 
you should go look elsewhere if you're after something like this

A terminal/console emulator for JavaScript. Functionality is modeled on the .NET 
Console class.

  See the example in the demo folder, otherwise the API is:
  Initialize the console:
    var container = document.getElementById( "container" );
    jConsole.initializeConsole( container, 80, 25 );
    The signature for initializeConsole is:
      function( container, width, height )      
  Then you can:
    Clear the console:
    Hide/show the cursor:
    Set the cursor position:
      jConsole.setCursor( 0, 5 );
      The signature for setCursor is:
        function( left, top )
    Change the console size:
      jConsole.setWindowSize( 80, 25 );
      The signature for setWindowSize is:
        setWindowSize: function( width, height )
    Write to the console:
      jConsole.write( "Hello World" );
      The signature for write is:
        function( value )
    Write to the console followed by a newline:
      jConsole.writeLine( "Hello World" );
      The signature for writeLine is:
        function( value )
    Set the current foreground color:
      jConsole.foregroundColor = "#888";
      You can use any CSS color value.
    Set the current background color:
      jConsole.backgroundColor = "#888";
      You can use any CSS color value.
    Blit to the whole console at once:
      jConsole.blit( tiles );
      The signature for blit is:
        function( tiles )
      tiles is a collection of tile:
        tile: { 
          C: <a character>, 
          F: <foreground color>, 
          B: <background color>
      The collection should contain exactly height * width elements.

  Doesn't work locally in Chrome :( But works when uploaded to a remote site.
  Works in FF, IE, Safari, Opera. 
  Chrome has a bug with local stylesheets.
  In Chrome it complains about a line in getCSSRule:
    cssRule = styleSheet.rules[ii];
  The message is:  
    Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property '0' of null

  Add a jQuery wrapper
  Some comments might be nice
  Find a better name, plenty of Google hits for jConsole already
  Work around Chrome bug
