Actually it would not be difficult using ChessBoardJS as a PGN viewer when used in combination with the chess.js library. http://chessboardjs.com/examples#5000 and https://github.com/jhlywa/chess.js (load_pgn) should be all you need to get started.
Of course there are several PGN viewers around, however most of them I find are rather outdated, require additional browser plugins such as Java or are rather restrictive with what you can do with them. The ability to setup positions via a FEN string, or simply being able to move pieces on the board by dragging and dropping with no need for PGN files is awesome, and necessary for the current project I am working on.
Sounds complicated and I don't think I have that skill set. :(
This all does sound complicated.
Thought this community might be interested. Feedback welcome!
If exploring an opening I would start with a sequence like this: 1. e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 and I don't see how that can be done with the "moves" example. You can either make a bunch of 1-moves or 2_moves but that is not how I can show an opening to a student. It needs so be sequential. One move at a time.
I can make moves on your ChessBoard and record them but the output is not a 'valid' FEN string that I can feed into chess.com analyzer board. I think the FEN string needs to know about 'en passant' and who is to move next and who has and who has not castled.
It would be nice if I could give a PGN String as an argument just the way I can do that with a FEN string and then play through the sequnce of moves.
I love the graphics and the size of the board! I like that I can include it on my server and generate a board. I can see it would be great for a presenting a puzzle.
I guess the chess.com analyzer board would be a model for your ChessBoard?
I will see if I can do anything with what Trahald suggested but I would have to learn a lot of JS and Jquery is my guess.
I have the two, ChessBoard and Chess, working together. :)
Now I will see how to use the png functionality of Chess to display a board via CHessBoard and then play through the png string so an opening can be explored.
I will keep you posted.
By the way the source for the images of the pieces is hard coded and if you want to move a srcipt out of the parent directory you will need to either change the hardwire code or copy the img/chesspieces/wikipedia png images to the current directory.
Let me know if anyone wants more details on how. I can post or send the test scripts.
So where can I get the HTML code for the board?
The above presumes you have downloaded the files from http://chessboardjs.com/ and https://github.com/jhlywa/chess.js
I renamed the folder from chess.js to chess_J. The folders chessboard and chess_J reside in a folder named chess. I run the script from the chess folder and that necessitates having to copy img/chesspieces/wikipedia into the chess folder.
The html code displays a chessboard in the start position and then random moves are displayed. That is as far as I have gotten.
I hope this is as clear as mud. :)
I have a few questions about the code.
1->What does do??
I have seen it in a lot of places where they tell you how to make chessboards.
2->what does do??
be in head section if you are using HTML 5 or did I get that concept wrong?
4->Can you show the out put of the code using insert position or game??
5-> can we discuss this at length using messages?
oakmac posted his ChessBoard software, which displays a chessborard, and some basic functions, here: http://chessboardjs.com/ This needs to be downloaded and unzipped.
The other piece of software that is needed can be found here: https://github.com/jhlywa/chess.js and it is the same sceanrio > you need to unzip, etc.
And my demo script takes advantage of these two two software apps and show a random game being played.
I am not an HTML or HTML 5 expert and have no clue how things should work.
All I know I have a script that works for me and you will have to adapt it after you figure out: http://chessboardjs.com/ and https://github.com/jhlywa/chess.js
What are you trying to do?
Hi folks :)
I posted here a while ago and promptly forgot about it; sorry!
Appreciate the kind words and feedback.
If anyone runs into issues the best place to get help is on the GitHub project issues: https://github.com/oakmac/chessboardjs/issues?state=open
This is awesome!
I have been using it to teach my students :=)
