> I've spent many days researching about how to use thrift binary protocol in the webbrowser,
so far with no clear result. There are many references across the internet but they do not
form a full picture.
> According to my findings, the binary protocol works in nodejs, and supposedly nodejs-thrift
is also in other aspects "superior" to plain Javascript. But I can not really put my finger

in a webbrowser to connect to a nodejs/Java/Python/C++/... server?
> My full user story is:
>  * A c++ thrift server
>  * A web page that should show an image that was delivered via thrift binary protocol
from the c++ server
