Javascript respectively Java to WinBoard-converter?

Post by Norbert Raimund Leisner » Sun Apr 06, 2014 2:48 pm

Hello together,

we have the following converters to the UCI-protocol:

Javascript Universal Chess Interface

Java Chess Protocol Interface

Why not Javascript to WinBoard/CECP-protocol and
Java to WinBoard/CECP-protocol?

Any suggestions?

Best wishes,

Hi Norbert,

I use Edmund's jsUCI to enable my javascript engine Lozza to be fired up in a non-browser context so it can be used in standard UIs, but it's the engine rather then jsUCI that determines the protocol. I chose to implement UCI but I could have chosen Winboard - so in that way jsUCI is perhaps badly named because it is in fact more generic than it appears by name alone.

colin is correct. jsUCI is perfectly capable to interface between winboard and javascript too. I just have happened to write example code of how to implement it for uci.

The only protocol related command that jsUCI parses is "quit", but that is valid for both winboard and uci.
