PGN Chess Flashcards

<10kB. 0 audio & 0 images. Updated 2018-06-02.


This deck includes a note type that will let you make interactive chess flashcards using chesstempo.com's PGN viewer. It will only work on desktop anki as it requires an addon. The deck contains one example note. Instructions It is easy to customize the look of the pieces, color of the squares, and everything else by editing the cards as well. See the chesstempo board viewer documentation or ask me a question on reddit (/u/nukeychess). Please forgive my sloppy HTML and CSS.

Sample (from 1 notes)

Cards are customizable! When this deck is imported into the desktop program, cards will appear as the deck author has made them. If you'd like to customize what appears on the front and back of a card, you can do so by clicking the Edit button, and then clicking the Cards button.

At this time, it is not possible to add shared decks directly to your AnkiWeb account - they need to be added from the desktop then synchronized to AnkiWeb.

"Invalid HTML on card: ReferenceError: PgnViewer is not defined"

Card must be tagged as "pgnchess" to activate.

I have try tagged it, but it's still not working.

Great work!
It would be great if we can promote pieces (at least to the one noted in PGN).

Hi, I am desperate to get this working, but so far no luck I have tried Anki 2.0 and 2.1 on may Mac OSX 10.12 with every combination of add ons, rebooting and reinstalling that I could think of... Would be really grateful for some trouble shooting help!

I have several issues but I finaly make it work.
I'm french and I made the mistake of using french PGN annotation (Knight = C (cavalier); Bishop = F (Fou)...)
And you need to put a space between each moove. (1.e4e5 is wrong / 1.e4 e5 is correct)

Now I seek how I can make Anki sending a message when the end of the expected move is reached.

however thank you for this stuf

Works great. It even works well on Ankidroid on my Kindle Fire HD 8. The only issue on the kindle is that the chess pieces aren't touch sensitive, and the movie controls are too small to be used easily. Overall, I love it. Thank you!

I've been playing chess for years. I've been using Anki for years as well to learn foreign languages. I've tried combining both chess and Anki in the past, but with poor results: manually creating diagrams from scratch was too time-consuming. Plus, they were too static and they took up too much space in the card.
This add-on changed everything, as I can now create cards super quickly and, most importantly, I can move the pieces on the board.
Thank you so much!

That's one of the most incredible things I've ever came across on Anki.

Congrats, congrats and congrats!
