Just have Snort or Barnyard output as syslog and have the syslog
server be your custom node.  Parsing syslog is trivial, and you can
the apply your HTML5 wrapper around it.  This will be the best
solution because you do not need to customize Snort or Barnyard--they
can be stock installations.  All of the custom code will be on your
custom node.
