the totally kafkaesque chess game
pinkman is a command line based chess interface to UCI compatible chess engines, particularly Stockfish; using Unicode written in Go.
For 64 bit Linux you can find the pinkman and stockfish binaries zipped into
pinkman-linux-64.tar.gz in releases.
If you want to compile them yourself or use another operating system you need to:
go get github.com/jubalh/pinkman
Download stockfish or install it via your package manager. Either place the stockfish binary in the same directory as the pinkman binary or specify a path to the stockfish engine:
$GOPATH/bin/pinkman --path /usr/bin/stockfish
Of course if you have added
$GOPATH/bin to your
PATH variable you can skip that prefix.
--help option to learn about pinkmans arguments and use the in game
help command to learn about its commands.
