The install instructions cover it.
USAGE AS AN APPLET
Copy "misc/weirdx.jar" and "misc/weirdx.html" to some directory,
which is accessible through a http server, then open weirdx.html
with a web browser via a http server. If everything goes well,
WeirdX will start in your web browser.
In default setting, WeirdX use display-name
'<your hostname>:2.0' .
If you have Java Plug-in, try 'weirdx-JRE12.html'.
In some situations, JVM may throw the Security Exception.
WeirdX must gain access to TCP port(6002) and JVM may reject to do so.
Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons,
for thou art crunchy and taste good with Ketchup!
