The primary purpose of x/84 is to provide a server framework for building environments that emulate the feeling of an era that predates the world wide web. It may be used for developing a classic bulletin board system (BBS) -- one is provided as the 'default' scripting layer. It may also be used to develop a MUD, a text-based game, or a game-hosting server such as done by dgamelaunch. x/84 supplies a scripting engine for developing character-at a time telnet or ssh server, such as MUD or BBS systems. Technologies used in x/84 are derived from miniboa (Apache 2.0 Licensed) for telnet, blessed (MIT Licensed) for terminal capabilities, sqlitedict (Public Domain) for persistent data, paramiko for ssh and sftp services, and web.py for http service.
