This looks great, without knowing much I was able to get:

./websocketd --staticdir=. --port=8123 ps

to give me a simple output of processes. What I'd really LOVE is to get this to work:

./websocketd --staticdir=. --port=8123 htop

It'd be great if I could see the output of htop on the web...from anywhere. I guess htop is setting up a different video mode or something that isn't compatible?

I think you would need to feed what you are getting to a Javascript terminal emulator. (e.g. https://github.com/chjj/tty.js/)
