We need to render Go diagrams.

Some ideas:


It produces diagrams that look wonderful on paper, but may be less suited for www. Interface in this case would be:

  • edit sgf file by some external utility
  • upload it
  • make link to it
  • image displayed would be rendered picture, and link would point to that .sgf

Some validation step would be required.

code from Sensei's Library[edit]

They have nice tool that generates .png and .sgf from some easy to use markup, which is certainly much more readable than .sgf. It could be edited directly, which is easier than uploading. Minus is lower quality in printing. The diagram generation part of Sensei's Library is copyrighted by Arno Hollosi and Morten Pahle. Drop them a line and they may grant usage.

our own solution[edit]

Something like texvc probably. We could make output that uses animation (mng, or animated gifs, or multiple pngs+javascript), or allow looking at it frame by frame (with JavaScript).

A new extension[edit]

that probably does what you want can be found at Go diagrams. --Glimz 15:29, 28 February 2006 (UTC)
