Smile KinGo: A viewer and editor for the game of Go [Kindle Touch]

Hi everyone,

I've been playing with Javascript for a couple of days now and I'm glad to share a little app with you today. I always wanted to play my favorite game of all times, Go also known as Igo (Chinese traditional name is Weiqi or Weichi) on my Kindle. Now I can.
I want to extend this viewer in future but decided to release it as some of you may like it and be useful for you too.

Instructions:
Just extract the zip file into your USB folder (main folder you see when connected with wire)/mnt/us/ and restart your Kindle OR ...
Spoiler:
simply ssh this command:
restart framework

Then you will see KinGo in your GUI Launcher under Games menu.
There are some SGF files in /mnt/us/extensions/games/KinGo/sgf/ and you should load this folder with your own game files.

Download (from my depositfiles account)

The toolbar is on the bottom of screen. You can show/hide some of the control panels so that you can comfortably see the game board. Also, you can open SGF files with the drop down list.

P.S. The version I have is way fancier than what I will attach below but for some reasons (IDK!!!) when ran on Kindle it crashes. Anyways, please let me know what you think, and how we can improve it.

Now let's play Go on the go.
Enjoy it

And by the way, do I have small hands and fingers?! hahahaha but seriously, I wanted to use most of the screen so designed border numbers microscopic, let me know if you like it. The font is a pixel font from dafont.com

Just a small comment. Why does the file external.sh have .sh extension if it is javascript file (.js)? Also the following should do what you want in one run, no need for temporary files and multiple sed invocations:

Code:
find sgf/ -iname '*.sgf' | sed -e '1ivar sgfFiles = [' -e '$ { s/.*/"\0" ]/;p;d }' -e 's/.*/"\0",/' > player/external.js

JB?

Do I have to Jailbreak the Kindle in order to use this? Also, how to use the ssh command?

Cheers

We are Go players and very interested in this add on. I too am wondering
if it requires the jailbreak? Haven't done that yet, and am a little hesitant.

On the Go topic -- I made a post about some online sites to play Go that
work in the Kindle Touch browser:

I love to play Go on my Kindle. But It is not working on my kindle. Is this app working on anyone's device? or it is just me?

Yes, I love Weiqi/Weichi/Go/Igo dude... Do you think Amazon will buy this if I offer it? How should I proceed (if at all)? <- Not that I don't love free apps!

Can you make sure you have the following folder please? /mnt/us/extensions/games/KinGo

You're welcome... Those button show/hide various control panels of the game. Scroll up/down (or even better view this WAF app in your computer) to notice the changes?

I might consider it but not now as I don't have much time... you guys can do it.

Thanks Nyoxi! I applied your suggestion. No particular reason for .sh extension, just chill man!

Pismire and Kiri57. Yes it should be jailbroken. And thanks for that post by the way Kiri57.

Sorry for my late replies everyone.
And by the way, this WAF is not meant to be in landscape mode (for now), so make sure you haven't used Orientation launcher.

Same for me.
The zip seems to contain only the game code etc, not the Launcher integration (config.xml, menu.json, ...) that I'm used to from other extensions.

Am I missing something?

Thanks for the effort, anyway!

I uploaded it again and this should be working for everyone... There was a small issue and it wasn't showing the GUI menu.

Oh as now I officially have a shiny new website, I chose to put it there (see first post or here). Please enjoy it and don't forget to feedback (both about KinGo and my website ).

I'll be working on remote viewing/editing of games in near future too.
