I'm wondering if it would be possible to create a client for Freeciv
which can be viewed in a web browser? Something like an Ajax-based
available in Mozilla and Safari. I think it should be possible to
implement an isometric mapview using it. Google is working on adding
canvas support to IE also.
communicates with a web server using ajax. The web server could be an
instance of the current Freeciv C client, which is modified to communicate
with the ajax client using a HTTP library such as Mihl.
A web client would make it easier for people to get quick access
to playing the game. And such a web client could be used for spectators to
games, etc. Something like Google maps, only for Freeciv..
Ps! Nice to see that Freeciv 2.1 is looking so nice and ready for release
