example

var terminal = require('browser-terminal');
var bashful = require('bashful');
 
var sh = bashful({
    env: {
        USER: 'guest',
        PS1: '\\[\\033[01;32m\\]\\u\\[\\033[00m\\] : '
            + '\\[\\033[01;34m\\]\\W\\[\\033[00m\\] $ ',
        HOME: '/home/guest',
        PWD: '/home/guest',
        UID: 1000
    },
    existsfunction (filecb) {
        cb(file === '/' || file === '/home' || file === '/home/guest');
    }
});
var term = terminal().appendTo('#terminal')
term.pipe(sh.createStream()).pipe(term);
 
window.addEventListener('keydown', term.keydown);

compile this with browserify into a bundle.js then write some html:

<html>
  <head>
    <title>terminal</title>
    <style>
      #terminal {
        position: absolute;
        left: 0px;
        top: 0px;
        bottom: 0px;
        right: 50%;
        padding: 10px 15px 10px 15px;
        background: black;
        font-family: monaco, monospace;
        font-size: 16px;
      }
    </style> 
  </head>
  <body>
    <div id="terminal"></div>
    <script src="/bundle.js"></script> 
  </body>
</html>

methods

var terminal = require('browser-terminal')

Create a new terminal duplex stream term.

Append the browser html element to the html element or query selector string target.

Respond to a keydown event ev. Unless you want to do fancy things, you can just forward along all keydown events:

window.addEventListener('keydown', term.keydown)
