The chess software that is developed for fun.
Initial creator is Leonid Rozenblyum (the last name could also be spelled as Rozenblium according to Ukrainian transliteration rules)
Main goals for version1 are:
- support Chess Engine Communication Protocol (http://home.hccnet.nl/h.g.muller/engine-intf.html)
This protocol is one of de facto standards in communicating between a chess GUI and an engine.
The well-known GUI implementations are XBoard/Winboard.
- Probably the fastest way to implement is to take into account the 'Minimal protocol' document http://home.hccnet.nl/h.g.muller/interfacing.txt
- know about all chess rules (including ambiguities with the 3'd position repetition and insufficient material)
- be able to choose at least random 'correct according to rules' move.
How to run
- Git clone
- Set up Winboard
- Set up correct WINBOARD_INSTALLATION_PATH
- Set up correct JAVA_PATH
Default (recommended) way
mvn clean package -Dproject.deployDirectory="path to set up"(
-DskipTests=trueif you feel brave; avoid
cleanphase if your IDE has already compiled the code)
New way (requires M3_HOME variable set up)
Public continuous integration is accessible via https://travis-ci.org/lrozenblyum/chess/builds
