Has anyone attempted to integrate Mycroft with PyChess? It shouldn’t be too hard, and I might start on it in a few weeks.
I haven’t seen anyone working on a chess Skill previously, and there’s nothing in Andlo’s unofficial list of Skills scraped from Github.
Sounds like a great Skill though!
It seems pychess is mainly the UI, all we really need is the backend, maybe this?
OH I also started with a skill. but I’m still at the beginning. I wanted to use stockfish. https://github.com/gras64/chess-skill
I haven’t had time to work on this skill. I suppose that I should get back to it. I’ve even got a Square Off board that I was going to try to integrate into the project, but I can’t get support from Square Off. I need the communication protocol that they send to the Arduino from their chess app, which appears to be an enhanced Chess.com app. Very proprietary.
I will be using PyChess. I realize that is a front-end, but it should be easy to interface with Mycroft.
Python-chess might work. Any idea how it compares to PyChess in stability and processing overhead?
would you like help with making the skill?
