Terminal in browser

Welcome to the repo. 🙂 This is an adventurous project where I aimed to take inputs as terminal commands in browser and execute those commands in server, and through websocket protocol show the actual terminal updates into the browser in real time. I have tested to executing multiple long-running commands from different browser in parallel, and verified each browser only receiving own command progress results.
