  • tbamud

    tbaMUD is the continued development of the codebase formerly known as CircleMUD.

    Thanks. Despite CircleMud getting re-licensed under LGPL two years ago, TbaMud hasn't been able to follow suit, so far. They need to contact a bunch of authors who have contributed code and get their consent. Tracking some of them proved impossible, so after 2 years, it looks like they've abandoned the idea. You can read more about it here if you're interested.

  • DikuMUD3

    DikuMUD III using HTML and websockets.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • MUD1

    Essex MUD1 by Trubshaw and Bartle

    Its probably more of academic interest than anything else, but the original Essex MUD (aka MUD1, British Legends) is available with source code and source mudlib using a GNU 3 licence. The downside is you will need a Dec PDP10 to run it.
