Build a Simple Chess AI in JavaScript

As a fun side project, I have implemented a simple chess AI using JavaScript. You can find the full source code for this tutorial in my GitHub repository.

Chess is a great game. It’s even better if you’re good at it. Regrettably, I’ve never taken the time to learn chess strategy, so I decided to rely on the power of computation and game theory instead! As a fun side project, I have implemented a simple chess AI using JavaScript.

You can find the full source code for this tutorial in my  GitHub repository.

The final product is playable  here.

Prerequisites

You should know basic programming and the general concept of a tree data structure. Everything else will be covered as part of this tutorial.

The two main algorithms involved are the  minimax algorithm and  alpha-beta pruning. These will be explained in-depth later on, and should be relatively simple to grasp if you have experience in programming.

First Things First…

Getting the GUI and game mechanics out of the way. This allows us to direct our focus towards only the most fascinating aspect of the application: the decision-making (AI) part! For this, we will be using external libraries:

  • chessboard.js handles the graphical interface, i.e. the chess board itself.
  • chess.js handles the game mechanics, such as move generation / validation.

With these libraries, you should be able to create a working chess game by following the  examples (5000 through 5005 in particular) on the chessboard.js website.

Making Sales More Efficient: Lead Qualification Using AI

If you were to ask any organization today, you would learn that they are all becoming reliant on Artificial Intelligence Solutions and using AI to digitally transform in order to bring their organizations into the new age. AI is no longer a new concept, instead, with the technological advancements that are being made in the realm of AI, it has become a much-needed business facet.

AI has become easier to use and implement than ever before, and every business is applying AI solutions to their processes. Organizations have begun to base their digital transformation strategies around AI and the way in which they conduct their business. One of these business processes that AI has helped transform is lead qualifications.

JavaScript Snake Game Tutorial - Develop a Simple Snake Game

Work on real-time JavaScript Snake game project and become a pro

Snake game is an interesting JavaScript project for beginners. Snake game is a single-player game, which we’ve been playing for a very long time. The game mainly consists of two components – snake and fruit. And we just need to take our snake to the food so that it can eat and grow faster and as the number of fruits eaten increases, the length of snake increases which makes the game more interesting. While moving if the snake eats its own body, then the snake dies and the game ends. Now let’s see how we can create this.

JavaScript Project Prerequisites

To implement the snake game in JavaScript you should have basic knowledge of:

1. Basic concepts of JavaScript

2. HTML

3. CSS

Download Project Code

Before proceeding ahead please download source code of Snake Game: Snake Game in JavaScript

Steps to Build the Project – JavaScript Snake game

1. Create Html file

HTML builds the basic structure. This file contains some basic HTML tags like div, h1, title, etc. also we’ve used bootstrap (CDN is already included).

index.html:

Code:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
    <meta charset="UTF-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
    <title>DataFlair Snake game</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://stackpath.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/4.5.0/css/bootstrap.min.css" integrity="sha384-9aIt2nRpC12Uk9gS9baDl411NQApFmC26EwAOH8WgZl5MYYxFfc+NcPb1dKGj7Sk" crossorigin="anonymous">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="static/style.css">
</head>
<body>
    <div class="container">
        <div class ="Jumbotron">
        <h1>DataFlair Snake game using vanilla JavaScript</h1>

            <h2 class="btn btn-info"> 
                Score:   0 
            </h2>

            <div class="containerCanvas">
                <canvas id="canvas" width="500" height="500" class="canvasmain"> </canvas>
            </div>
        </div>
    </div>
    <script src="static/fruit.js"></script>
    <script src="static/snake.js"></script>
    <script src="static/draw.js"></script>
</body>
</html>

We have used simple HTML tags except tag. This new tag was introduced in HTML5, which is used to draw graphics, via JavaScript. It is nothing without JavaScript so we will use it in our JavaScript file to actually draw the board and the objects required. We’ll see its implementation in JS files.

JavaScript compound assignment operators

JavaScript is unarguablly one of the most common things you’ll learn when you start programming for the web. Here’s a small post on JavaScript compound assignment operators and how we use them.

The compound assignment operators consist of a binary operator and the simple assignment operator.

The binary operators, work with two operands. For example a+b where + is the operator and the a, b are operands. Simple assignment operator is used to assign values to a variable(s).

It’s quite common to modify values stored in variables. To make this process a little quicker, we use compound assignment operators.

They are:

  • +=
  • -+
  • *=
  • /=

You can also check my video tutorial compound assignment operators.

Let’s consider an example. Suppose price = 5 and we want to add ten more to it.

var price = 5;
price = price + 10;

We added ten to price. Look at the repetitive price variable. We could easily use a compound += to reduce this. We do this instead.

price += 5;

Awesome. Isn’t it? What’s the value of price now? Practice and comment below. If you don’t know how to practice check these lessons.

Lets bring down the price by 5 again and display it.
We use console.log command to display what is stored in the variable. It is very help for debugging.
Debugging let’s you find errors or bugs in your code. More on this later.

price -= 5;
console.log(price);

Lets multiply price and show it.

price *=5;
console.log(price);

and finally we will divide it.

price /=5;
console.log(price);

If you have any doubts, comment below.
