ttyd - Share your terminal over the web

ttyd is a simple command-line tool for sharing terminal over the web, inspired by GoTTY.


  • Build on libwebsockets with C for speed
  • Full terminal emulation based on hterm
  • SSL support based on OpenSSL
  • Run any custom command with options
  • Basic authentication support
  • Cross platform: macOS, Linux, OpenWrt/LEDE


Install on macOS

Install with homebrew:

brew install ttyd

Install on Linux

Ubuntu 16.04 as example:

sudo apt-get install cmake g++ pkg-config git vim-common libwebsockets-dev libjson-c-dev libssl-dev
git clone
cd ttyd && mkdir build && cd build
cmake ..
make && make install

NOTE: You may need to compile libwebsockets from source for ubuntu versions old than 16.04, since they have outdated libwebsockets-dev package (Issue #6).

Install on OpenWrt/LEDE

opkg install ttyd

NOTE: This may only works for LEDE snapshots currently, if the install command fails, compile it yourself.

ttyd starts web server at port 7681 by default, the command will be started with arguments as options. For example, run:

ttyd bash

Then open http://localhost:7681, now you can see and control the bash console on your web broswer! :tada:

TIP: You may replace bash with login to get a login prompt first.


  • GoTTY: ttyd is a port of GoTTY to C language.
  • hterm: ttyd uses hterm to run a terminal emulator on the web.
