Chess board Component?

has anyone had any success using the chessboard in an app.
i tried a lot , but it takes a lot of time!!!
Any workarounds or successes here?
Really appreciate responses :grinning:

What do you mean by “the chessboard”? Can you provide a screenshot or an example?

I meant this

I wanted to ask if someone here had success making a sort of chess game app

Oh. The word “component” in Thunkable refers to a built-in block which is why I was confused. I know @codeswept made a chutes & ladders game based on a grid. I haven’t done anything with chess myself.


Oh ok. I actually tried using the chessboard api in the webviewer and connecting it to the thunkable app using the extension but it is very very difficult.
That’s why I wanted to ask thunkable team to build this component but before that i wanted to ask if any of my fellow thunkers here have had any success :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

Yeah, I did make a game with a grid. Let me try and see if I can adapt it for chess.

thanks for sharing this @codeswept.
I will try this out. but what i meant is that it taking tonnes of coding for the rules like castling and en passant etc.
There is already a chessboard api that works but i wanted something native.
But i will definitely try this out. :grinning:

True, I’ve just been trying to make the chessboard work as well.

Really? I’d love to check it out! Could you please share the link here?

You will have to download this and use the given sample of code in html or java.
I made a few apps based on this too. but they are time consuming.
I was planning on making a live chess server like

using javascript and i am kinda… halfway through?
