Please note that what's available on NPM is not the full noVNC client, it's only the core modules/library and is lacking a user application.

Install

noVNC requires a browser with HTML5 support, this means it works on all major browsers but not on IE 10. See the README for more details.

Get noVNC by downloading one of the archives from the release page.

Run a VNC server, run a WebSocket proxy that points to the VNC server, load the page, and connect! See the quick-start instructions in the project README for more details.
