Javascript only version of the midibridge

Deprecated, please use Chris Wilson’s WebMIDIAPI Shim I have started to port the midibridge to a Javascript only version. Over here you can find a proof of concept:

http://abumarkub.net/midibridge/js1/ In the midi inputs dropdown menu you’ll find the option “Regular Computer Keyboard”. If you choose this option, you can play notes C4 to C5 (diatonic) with the keys A, S, D, F, G, H, J and K. It is a very simple implementation only meant to show you the idea. Please note that this version uses a slightly different version of the midibridge applet. You can *not* interchange the applets of the Actionscript and Javascript version! The way the applet is embedded has been completely rewritten and is now fully HTML5 compliant. In due course i will update the Actionscript version as well.
