What would you like to do?
GUI for ASF3, based on @KlappPc's page. jQuery removed. Clicking a text area highlights it. Styles added. Font sizes increased. Placeholders added to textareas and input.
<script type="text/javascript">
var script = function(){
var textarea = document.getElementById('consoleOut');
var updateLog = function(){
var xhr = new XMLHttpRequest();
xhr.onload = function(){
textarea.scrollTop = textarea.scrollHeight;
setInterval(updateLog, 5000);
document.getElementById('sendbutton').onclick = function(){
var xhr = new XMLHttpRequest();
xhr.onload = function(){
document.getElementById('commandReply').innerText = this.response.trim();
}"GET","IPC/?command=" + document.getElementById('commandInput').value);
document.querySelectorAll('textarea, input[type="text"]').forEach(function(ele){
<style type="text/css">
body {
height: 100%;
margin: 0;
min-width: 75px;
min-height: 400px;
font-size: 14pt;
input[type="text"] {
border: 1px solid rgba(0,0,0,0.1);
width: calc(100% - 200px);
margin: 10px 10px 0px 10px;

does not work, if the file is only openend locally and is not served by a webserver (as it would be for most users in the end).
Add the IP to the adress for that to work.

I don't have newlines in firefox (in both textareas). In chrome I have. Setting value instead of innerText fixes that. But I don't have vertical scrollbars in firefox as well. Don't know why ^^.

Well if you had the page served by a webserver and you don't have log.txt lying in the same directory you get a 404.

About cross origin.
Firefox handles that by assuming file:/// is the same origin and allowing requests. Yet most methods I tried did not worked for the file-protocol. Thats why I used jQuery. Chrome assumes thats always cross-site and therefore you would have to allow cross site in general for chrome (since log.txt can not sent it's own header via file protocol as far as I know), which is bad.
For sending the IPC you will (and should) get a cross-site exception unless the GUI is served from a webserver with the same ip. Thats why ASF has to allow "null" as origin, because that is the origin from a script executed in a file NOT served by a webserver.
That should work everywhere (but I tested only chrome and firefox).

If you serve the GUI from a webserver with the same IP as ASF you don't have any of these problems. Yet the most common use case will probably be opening the file without a running webserver.

PS: I really dislike the "select everything on click" but I guess you had a reason for that ;->

Edit: Ah, and for the openID. You mean we use openID to send the token to ASF and can read the badgepage without passwort/login or what?
Not possible since ASF needs to be logged in to play games.
Or I am still not getting what you want.
The usecase I am currently picturing is a *.html file without webserver beeing opend locally on the same PC where ASF is running (average "stupid" user case).
In case you have a local webserver some things get easier.
But in case you have a global webserver things suddenly get way more complicated security wise. Is that what you are talking about?

Get both scrollbars with
overflow: -moz-scrollbars-horizontal -moz-scrollbars-vertical;
