    I am astonished at the omission of ChakraCore, open sourced by Microsoft but sadly abandoned by them after they switched Edge to Chromium: But it looks like it’s still chugging along as a community effort rather than being completely abandoned.

There's even an npm package you can use to process SGF files and automatically score moves as good/questionable/bad + generate variations that were better choices:

  • GitHub repo cncjs

    A web-based interface for CNC milling controller running Grbl, Marlin, Smoothieware, or TinyG.

    Project mention: Going Commando | | 2021-10-31

    It seems like every day I discover motion controls that I've never heard of before, and I'm genuinely curious what's out there that would be appropriate for a machine like the Avid. It might be a benchtop machine but it's quite robust and probably more rigid than the full size routers.
