Play chess in your terminal

Overview

Gambit

Chess board in your terminal.


Terminal chess


Warning

gambit does not have many features at the moment. I plan on adding a chess engine, mouse support, timers, networked play, game replays, etc...

Move

Suppose you want to open as white with Pawn E4. You will first select the square with the piece you want to move by typing E2, then type the square of the desired end position E4.

Just like a real chess board, gambit currently supports illegal moves. This will likely change in the future.

Players

gambit supports local and networked play. You can play a local game by running gambit and moving the pieces. You can flip the board by pressing ctrl+f to allow the second player to go.

For networked play (not available yet), both players can run gambit unique-room-id, this will connect both players to a shared room in which both can take turns making moves.

    Hi Maas,

    This is still wip networked play using ssh and wish 😃 it still needs some brushing up and more testing but so far it looks good. Lmk what you think.

    You can start the server by running gambit serve. By default, it runs on port 53531, generates an ed25519 key at the root directory gambit_ed25519, and binds to localhost.

  • update README.md

    update README.md

    When copying and pasting into the terminal from the README, it doesn't work.

    git clone github.com/maaslalani/gambit
    

    The new fix is by adding https:// and that works.

    Please see images below: image

    I think this is actually two separate issues. For the more obvious one, causing the 'white' pawns to be off of the board: I believe this is due to selective emoji support in the terminal. Some glyphs are printed as, well, glyphs, and others as emojis.

    I am not sure how to fix this just yet.

    However, the glyph-only rows are also uneven with the rest of the board.

    Can we add a command to adjust the whitespace length or something to fix the rendering? (i.e. the user types the spacebar and the width of all squares increase except for those containing a piece).

    Sorry, I am just brainstorming here a bit, hopefully this isn't spam.
