I had come across websocketd a while ago, and to try it out, wrote a simple Python program and a web page. The two posts about it are here:

1. Use WebSockets and Python for web-based system monitoring:

2. websocketd and Python for system monitoring - the JavaScript WebSocket client:

Note: As it says in one of the posts, you have to:

set PYTHONUNBUFFERED=true

for the Python program to work as a websocket server, though it works fine without that if only run directly at the command line (without websocketd). Thanks to Joe for pointing this out.

websocketd is a nice utility.
