Description

The goal: users who only have access to a Web browser can access an Arvados shell, so they can use a FUSE mount, our CLI tools, etc. Configure and deploy whatever services are necessary for users to get this functionality through a Web client.

The specific implementation is up to you. You can research possible solutions as part of this story, although I'm not sure we need a very thorough survey. Abram has done some promising experiments with (IIRC) tty.js, which may be useful for us.

One requirement is that it must be possible to integrate the Web client in Workbench. However, doing the actual integration work is a separate story.
