Hi all, I have an idea for a new thing I'd like to build but I'm not sure if the resources I need are available.
Quick background, I'm a .NET desktop app developer, but have recently been doing Java Web programming - mostly servlet business objects and data related pieces. I'm not very familiar with other Web technologies and know nothing about greasemonkey.
Since many of us have jobs that don't smile upon playing internet chess at work, I want to build something that will print diagrams, maybe 6 to a page, of all your pending games. That way I can print it off in the morning and make the moves offline throughout the day.
I don't know what RHP has to offer to make this easier. I know I can email my incomplete games to me, but that is too much of a hassle to do every morning. If I can't build a one-step process, I probably won't do it.
Are there any webservices hosted by RHP that will allow me to authenticate in and get my pending games images or even just FEN diagram text? I can build something to turn the FEN to an image ( I think there are some free API's out there to do this as well).
Any other developers have any idea's on how to do this, or is there something like this already out?
Thanks for your help.
