Draughts projects on GitHub

Post by Rein Halbersma » Thu Nov 24, 2016 21:57

I have uploaded several publicly available draughts related projects to GitHub: the engines Horizon, Moby Dam and Scan, the GUI Hub, the Cake endgame generator, compressor and access code, as well as three Russian draughts engines SiDra, Skifi and KestoG. Original copyrights and author attributions have been respected, and I've notified the original authors that I would be happy to fork their code in the event that they themselves would start maintaining a GitHub repo.

Hopefully this can be a small step towards strengthening our small community by sharing more and more code :) I would encourage others to follow and enter GitHub with their own accounts and their own code. It doesn't have to be your entire secrets: small snippets such as GUI access code, move generators are also welcome (such as currently posted as Dropbox links e.g.)!

Of course, there are many more draughts projects on GitHub, such as Ed's endgame databse access code and Ed's and Martin Fierz's Checkerboard GUI. Who knows, someone here might be inspired to make that into a 10x10 GUI! :)

Come have a look!

Rein, for an unknown reason I feel personally addressed by your post :)

Ha Bert, well you are I think the person with the biggest treasure trove of code that you have already shared (thank you for all that!), but it's scattered in several hard to find posts here (which is why I haven't yet collected them and put it in a Damage repo, but I might!). So yes, in that sense, I would be most happy if you would feel addressed :) But Michel, Joost, Gerard and others are invited as well!

Rein, thanks for your email.

No problem to share all the GUI code, and it is an awful lot.
But I hope you will help me to support me in putting all in GitHub, and also to clean the project (as it is heavily polluted).
Im not a Github expert , and also dont know all the ins and outs of Visual Studio to connect project to the GitHub.
If you drop me in email, I will give you the link where you can download the complete GUI Sources.

Bert
