Puzzles on the Web

Check out this very cool port of Simon Tatham's Portable Puzzle Collection to the web, by Jacques Le Roux, using Emscripten.

Nice quote from there:
This was basically just an experiment to see how hard it would be to port C code to a web application running entirely on the client (turns out not that hard).

  1. Wasn't the C code running entirely on the client already?

    Don't get me wrong, I'm exceptionally glad Web Developers are now looking to shift code that was mostly server-side back to clients in the recent years. But it is just that, a short trend to run code remotely and only get the results.
