There are more and more devices with no Adobe Flash plugin support in web browser (new Android and Apple phones and tables, etc.). The aim of this project is to replace Flash testdrive in SUSE Studio with HTML5 client.
So our current implementation bases on our project from a previous Cloud workshop which uses noVNC.
The main issue is still the multiple keyboard layout conversion, but even the currently used Flash implementation has similar issues.
Our implementation is not perfect but it has some advantages over the Flash implementation for example:
* Running on basically every device which is shipped with a modern HTML5 browser (no plugins needed) * Being able to enter AltGr key combinations via a button * Allowing umlauts if the correct keyboard layouts are used * Support of encrypted Testdrive connections if officially signed SSL certificates are available
I have created a pull request against Studio
The development host is http://acubens.arch.suse.de:3000/ .
Jan has created a patch against QEMU to be able to change the keyboard layout via the console instead of just using the cmd parameter.
I have pushed some changes upstream to noVNC but I am not sure if they want to use it. I need to discuss this with them since noVNC does not only target Linux.
