Lichess.org has probably the best chess analysis interface. But, the problem it works only online.

Whereas, Stockfish the engine behind the analysis is downloadable, the interface is not.

I am looking for an analysis software (preferably open source and free) that uses traditional engines and can provide data such as number of blunders, mistakes, inaccuracies etc,. And, preferably with graphs and statistics like lichess.org.

The reason for open source is that so it can be compiled across several operating systems. And, most importantly, can be modified to suit individual needs.

  • Within which O.S. would it need to operate? Jul 18, 2016 at 18:17
  • @CharlesRockafellor I added the information you requested. :) Jul 19, 2016 at 15:35

    Stockfish does have an interface (at least the one on mac) but I don't know if they have statistics.

  • @chackerian I already read that; most of the suggested software is not free or does not run on multiples OSes, SCID runs on Linux as well and is open source but does not provide automatic annotations or statistics such as blunders etc,. like lichess.org. Jul 20, 2016 at 14:02
