    One of the nice parts about it is it's open source :) It looks like it is (mostly) a raw TCP connection - take a look at, which uses the net module from node.js. As far as I can see, this looks like raw TCP rather than actually telnet. The one thing that the telnet_bridge.js code does do is look for a request for term type and can respond with that, though that looks like that would be easy to comment out or make into an option if that were a problem.

    I didn't write an app, however. I rely on the browser notification API which doesn't have the best support on mobile unfortunately. It works great on desktop.

    My inspiration was the same though. I do most of my work over ssh, and wanted a local desktop notification when a slow command was finished running.
