A journey of getting HTML to work inside Eclipse

HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript are great technologies to build modern and highly interactive user interfaces. And we use those technologies for browser-based web applications all the time. While working more and more towards cloud-based developer tooling, we thought that it would be great to build certain user interfaces and tools only once and re-use them for cloud-based tooling as well as inside an Eclipse-based IDE. But how to do that? How to run those HTML-based UIs inside Eclipse? Of course SWT has an embedded browser widget and that seems to be the most logical answer to this question.
