Javascript QL Emulator

Postby RWAP » Fri Sep 21, 2018 11:22 am

One thing we have always missed is the ability to run a QL within a web browser (eg to allow people to try some of the software).

I recently came across Cheerp and Cheerpj (for converting C/C++ and Java to javascript)
https://www.leaningtech.com/cheerpj/dow ... index.html

It is free for non-commercial use so maybe someone would like to try converting SMSQmulator to Javascript... Is q-emulator another option?

Oh and emscripten is free in all cases, so a much better target!

I have never tried MESS for emulating the QL - when I looked at it, the wealth of options and method of setting it up to emulate the QL just seemed much too complex. How does it compare to q-emulator ?

Its a pretty accurate BBQL emulator with floppy disk, Ill need to remind myself the cmdline options to launch just QL and post them here.

There is no microdrive emulation though!
