An eventual FIBS client written in Flutter and hosted on the web.
Currently, the app works as a stand-alone backgammon game w/o connecting to fibs.net.
You can try it live here: https://playfibs-f3c5b.web.app/#/
It works on desktop and mobile form factors.
The goal is to host it on the web and make it work against the FIBS server on fibs.com. I’ve got a lot of the networking/websocket proxy code already written in my fibscli_lib repo.
fibscli uses websocat to proxy from websockets to telnet.
If running JIBS locally, then configure websocat like this:
$ websocat --binary ws-l:127.0.0.1:8080 tcp:127.0.0.1:4321 --exit-on-eof -v
If running against fibs.com, then configure webtelnet like this:
$ websocat --binary ws-l:127.0.0.1:8080 tcp:fibs.com:4321 --exit-on-eof -v
Now running fibscli will use a websocket on port 8080 of the localhost to connect to either JIBS or FIBS as appropriate.
