MediaWebPortal is a small standalone website that I created years ago.
Back in the day I was still running MediaPortal as my go to HTPC solution. Since I wanted an easy way to navigate the web with a remote or keyboard, I created a quicklaunch for website links. That way I could launch FireFox in fullscreen mode and have this website as my homepage. After starting FireFox from MediaPortal I could then easily navigate by remote to the website I wanted.
Since I wanted to make it as easy as possible for people to run this by themselves, I dropped the requirement to run this on a webserver. The whole project can be run just by double clicking the index.html. All logic is done in jQuery, no serverside programming languages are used.
