Chess Program

I’m writing a chess program in Python 3 as a learning exercise. My goal is to see how far I can get implementing the mechanics of the game while following best practices for documentation, programming, and unit testing. I’m not expecting to produce a working program.

The following modules represent my chess program. Click on the module name to see the documentation and click on the source link to view the code.
