A screenshot of ssb-chess

Correspondence chess built on top of the scuttlebutt platform. More information about scuttlebutt here: and

It is built to allow it to be integrated into scuttlebutt viewers (such as patchbay, patchwork using depject so that they can take care of things like discovering friends to play with, etc.


ssb-chess-mithril is currently integrated into patchbay. You can find it in the menu at the top right (the blue dot) and then the 'chess' menu item.

Libraries used

  • ssb-chess is used for all the ssb-chess protocol logic (querying games, making moves, sending invites, etc)
  • Mithriljs is used for rendering the pages.
  • Chessground is used for the board and pieces widget and animating the moves.
  • Embedded Chat is used for the chatroom to allow the players to chat during their game.

Integrating ssb-chess into a scuttlebutt application using depject

Requires the ssb-chess-db scuttlebot plugin to be installed.

You can read more about depject here
