ChesSkelet JS - A port of world's smallest chess to JavaScript

Post by maksimKorzh »

Hello everyone!

A few days ago I got an email from Alex Garcia, the author of a 269 bytes of Z80 assembly chess program,
ChesSkelet: http://borialabs.free.nf/chesskelet/?i=1
Guinness world record holderhttps://www.guinnessworldrecords.com/wo ... -programme

Once I had a quick look at the source code I instantly got stunned by this amazing state-of-art work
which has motivated me to port it to JavaScript so that more folks could enjoy its brilliancy.

Here's my port: https://github.com/maksimKorzh/chesskelet-js
And here's a detailed video explanation of how it works:

My program behaves exactly the same as original, it was made in a collaboration with Alex, the author of the original program.
Hope you enjoy it!
