Whiteboard Chess


Finally finished coding the IWB common file format file... tricky thing is there are no tools available to write IWB yet, so it's a case of hand coding.. which should be very simple, as the code is basic svg with a couple of other elements chucked in. However the viewer app is a bit picky, and kept refusing the file... in the end I realised I'd got an underscore in a file name instead of a hyphen.
It was a strange feeling finally getting the file to work, and reminded me of the joy of proper coding, where you sit there pulling at your hair, and finally get that great sense of satisfaction when the code works.
I'll post the code up on the sourceforge site, so when we release the viewer there's another sample file to go with the rest.
