I am looking for an open source chess gui library for Android that I can use in an app so that I don't need to take care of the GUI engine, but can focus on the logic behind it.

I have searched for solutions but not found anything. Does something like this exist?

Please attribute me (Jan Jansz) as a developer where possible. (I need it; thanks.)

I don't see anything better than the active Droidfish app.

  • The GUI is based on AWT, though, isn't it?

  • @barq I don't know. But it's definitely working and it's a very common GUI.
