You can now challenge someone to game of #chess over toots! 💪

It's actually a standalone server in the #fediverse, implementing #activitypub all by itself. 😃


@kosinus does it support long notation (Ng1-f3 instead of Nf3?)

@devurandom I don’t think it does, at the moment, but will look into it! 👍

@devurandom Turns out, it actually did already! But for fun, I just now taught it unicode, so you can use ♘ too. 😁

@kosinus oh, cool!

to be honest, i'm absolutely terrible at chess (the best i've ever done is beating an nes chess game at its lowest difficulty).

but it is interesting seeing the fediverse being used in interesting ways like that!

@devurandom So am I! And what I learned (in building this) was more rules than strategy. 😄

The point was definitely to learn about federation and ActivityPub.
