Notehack started off as a programming exercise. The task I set myself was to duplicate all the wonderful functionality of Clippy in "pure" JS, e.g. without using jquery or AJAX or anything else.
I don't know about you, but whenever I play Nethack I tend to have a lot of browser tabs open. There's Clippy, of course, but also the Darrow/Corbett corpses spoiler, the wiki, and usually one or two others. So I thought to myself, "Self... why isn't there an easy-to-use page that has all of these things, and maybe more?"
Thus was the expansion from a simple Clippy clone to what is now Notehack. Notehack's data tables are (mostly) taken directly from the source code, which I parsed with regex to translate the data into JS arrays. It was definitely not the easiest way to go, but it works well at runtime and is easy on the server.
