How does it works ?


The frontend application uses and canvas for binding with mstsc.js backend. The front-end is in charge of bitmap decompression through rle.js file. This file is generated by Emscripten from rle.c which comes from rdesktop source.


The backend application uses nodejs, express and as the web server. The main goal of the backend is to be a proxy between the web browser and the terminal server. It uses node-rdpjs for its rdp client.
