And Mikrotik has the right to allocate dev resources wisely and not waste it on supporting every small user group... Linux, apple, unix, bsd, ...
Exactly why web interface exists!

Obviously I'm not an expert, as you imply!

But since you have the numbers on the user groups, please share them! So how many users of LInux, iOS, MacOs, ... are there?

As the Winbox name suggests, it's a Windows Box.

Want some more whine with that cheese? Perhaps you should follow the mum mikrotik lead and go mac OS! :-)

There is absolutely nothing wrong with winbox under WINE. An expert Linux user will use all tools available to set up their environment. I use Winbox without fail on all my Linux machines.

I would like to see a faithful port of Winbox to HTML5~JavaScript. I'm prepared to even make it if paid to do so.

There's a pretty good HTML implementation called WebFig. One major thing that WebFig can't do and I highly doubt it's doable in HTML5+java is MAC connect. The rest (sub windows etc.) is either minor or doable in WebFig framework.

Not Java, JavaScript.

But, yeah, a MAC connection ... hmm, I don't know who to do that. The HTML5 (that's html, css, javascript) client I'm suggesting, that I would personally create, would be entirely over a WebSocket. I've written my own server before and WebSocket is the way to do a proper fast GUI over HTML5. So, what I'm suggesting is that MikroTik embed a WebSocket server and allow us control it (directories for files, etc). I'll write the GUI and it will look and act just like WinBox.

I really like WinBox, but there are times where an HTML5 GUI could be really useful.

That's funny since Mikrotik always shows up with Apple MacBooks at the MUM. :lol:
