Toledo NanoChess UCI
Toledo NanoChess is originally a killer chess engine because it is the smallest one in the world ! The quality of the code within so few bytes is totally incredible.
- Play with a desktop application through the modern UCI protocol.
- Undo the last move without losing your game.
- With pyChess' slider, select the strength of the AI when you start a new game (6 is a good value).
- Toledo plays both White and Black.
- Play Chess960 with unsupported castling.
- Information about the analysis : processing time, nodes, nodes per second...
Despite it was coded and tested in just three days, this UCI port doesn't aim to be the smallest one in the world... ;-)
First, install NodeJS.org which is the host application to run the script.
For pyChess, just add
toledo-uci.js to the list of engines.
For WinBoard, add this new line in the engine list :
"Toledo NanoChess UCI" -fcp 'C:\full-path-to\node.exe "C:\full-path-to\toledo-uci.js"' -fn "Toledo NanoChess UCI" -fUCI
For the command line, execute

Any other command is unsupported (like
