webshell

This is a little toy project, which uses websocketd to build an easy shell in the browser. It allows you to run predefined commands and sends the output back to the browser using websockets.

Running webshell

From inside the project directory, having websocketd installed, you can run it with:

$ websocketd --port=8888 --passenv=USER,HOME,PATH --staticdir=html/ ./webshell.py

Security concerns

You shouldn't make this publicly accessible!!!

Use a normal webserver (nginx, apache ...) as a reverse proxy with a suitable authentication method configured. Follow these instructions for a cookie-based authentication using Nginx.
