OpenPlayChess is one of the projects I once started, got kind of working and then just dropped.
I don’t even have the code anymore that I once used, but I still got a partial documentation from google code.
You could find it here , but right now it’s not really worth a look.
I will probably clean the documentation and rewrite a small python library for it (it was meant to be implemented in pychess), but that’s about it. It’s a library to use
Since I started using linux 10 years ago I didn’t quite get the chance to play chess online. So it would be a welcome change in pace for me.
