Friday: Chess Playtime

I always tell people that there are many hidden gems on my playground. In the upcoming weeks, I will start to release some of those secrets to the public. You can peek at the snippets and perhaps put them to some good use.

It is Friday, so we start with some playtime: Blue Chess is a pretty old class which I wrote a year ago as proof of concept. It allows you to play a round of chess with 10kb elegant JavaScript. That is, if you find an opponent in real life, since it has no AI opponent. My favourite features are the animated dragging and interactive preview of possible moves. You can also pick up pieces and undo moves, but the implemented rules for “check-mate” are not yet complete.

Enjoy!

p.s. I fixed the SqueezeBox.css which was released yesterday. I forgot to update some lines. If any problems occurred on your site using it, try downloading it again.
