I am a CS student and I'd love to make a command line chess game. Ideally I would be able to ping my moves directly to my opponent and just for fun I would rather use ASCII art to print the board (No memory chess) at the command line.
I have a 4 year computer science degree under my belt and I'm just starting work as a Java programmer. I want to go back to basics for a bit of fun but I'm stumped on how to start.
What kind of a connection would you establish and how? What language would you use and what would be the most difficult thing about this project in your opinion.
2 linux machines on the same network, I can ping the machine easy.
What thoughts do I have on a possible approach?
I could do it in Java easily and maybe that's the best option for me. Make an executable Jar and run it from the command line. I was just hoping to learn a new language or skill with a scripting language or similar. I just don't know anything about setting up a connection in Python for example.
Sorry, I know the question was a bit vague but I was just looking for a couple of pointers, nothing in depth. What technology would you use.
