    ♞ lichess.org: the forever free, adless and open source chess server ♞

    My questions are as follows: 1) In the analysis section, some of the moves are marked as mistakes, inaccuracies and blunders by their respective symbols. Could there be a depiction of views which are good, great and brilliancy moves? 2) Apart from the chess server work, what other hobbies do you have? 3) What is your vision of lichess.org in the next coming years?

  • GitHub repo api

    Lichess API documentation and examples (by lichess-org)

    See other replies for websites that use the Lichess API to provide this service. I think it's cool that there is room for many chess services and websites.

  • OPS

    OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels. Quickly and easily build and deploy open source unikernels in tens of seconds. Deploy in any language to any cloud.

  • GitHub repo stockfish.wasm

    WebAssembly port of the strong chess engine Stockfish

    No, thibault doesn't develop stockfish. We use WASM stockfish, which is developed by Niklas, one of the primary lichess devs. However it is technically a completely different project. You can find it here: https://github.com/niklasf/stockfish.wasm The problems database is accessible here: https://database.lichess.org/#puzzles Time odds: https://reddit.com/r/chess/comments/mpasyl/i_started_lichess_ask_me_anything/gu8nz3s/ Not currently possible, not planned to be added App github: https://github.com/veloce/lichobile. You can find all the repositories here: https://github.com/veloce/lichobile

  • GitHub repo fishnet

    Distributed Stockfish analysis for lichess.org

  • GitHub repo lila-openingexplorer

    Opening explorer for lichess.org that can handle all the variants and billions of unique positions

    Here is the open issue on Github of it https://github.com/niklasf/lila-openingexplorer/issues/63

  • GitHub repo listudy

    Listudy - chess training server

    Would you consider merging https://listudy.org into the official website if they allow it? I love the idea of studies, but I'm not that good at memorizing if it's just a noninteractive pgn file, and I like the idea of spaced repetition but listudy doesn't have that many good public studies right now because it's a small website. Anyways, thanks so much for lichess!

  • GitHub repo Plausible Analytics

    Simple, open-source, lightweight (< 1 KB) and privacy-friendly web analytics alternative to Google Analytics.

    nandemo asked about geolocation tracking for lichess, maybe you could try https://plausible.io or matamo? Both libre/open source and non-tracking (althought default plausible instance is cloudflare hosted I think).

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • GitHub repo Projects

    :page_with_curl: A list of practical projects that anyone can solve in any programming language.

    For now I'm doing some problems from this repo: https://github.com/karan/Projects

  • GitHub repo lila-ws

    Lichess' websocket server

    Mainly, handle the websocket connections with a different server: https://github.com/ornicar/lila-ws

  • GitHub repo lichobile

    lichess.org mobile application

    App github: https://github.com/veloce/lichobile. You can find all the repositories here: https://github.com/veloce/lichobile

  • GitHub repo oddslingers.poker

    The Django + React codebase powering the free, open-source poker platform: OddSlingers.com

    Our poker platform is now open source too, we were inspired by Lichess and ended up following the Lichess model and making it totally free/non-profit :) https://github.com/Monadical-SAS/oddslingers.poker

  • GitHub repo deskml

    A a platform for devising desktop applications from web content on 32-bit systems

    I'm not insulting anybody. I just don't think Thib's open source software achievements rise to "legend" status. Here's the project but I doubt you'll understand it; yeah, that was an insult. Now fuck off. https://github.com/dexygen/deskml
