Turbocharge lichess.org with a ton of features
This extension adds a lot of extra functionality to the https://lichess.org web site. Main features: - Extended Interactive Lessons allow you to play ALL variations - Explorer Practice allows you to play against the moves in Opening Explorer, essentially helping you train against any rating bracket on the Internet or a specific opponent - Enhanced PGN Import in Analysis board allows you to merge multiple PGNs into a single one (lichess limitations strip down the comments, but I am working on a solution). This helps you quickly collect a player's repertoire and maybe save it as a study Interactive Lesson, simulating their play. Then you can export the current analysis moves into separate lines as well, or just copy a single branch as a PGN. - See evaluation of possible moves of the selected piece in analysis - Automatic detection of interesting moves - Mobile device features (for browsers that support extensions on mobile, like Kiwi), including drawing arrows and circles on mobile, scroll/zoom lock while playing, etc. - Change the friends box into a menu or a button, live update Friends page, - Sound and voice notifications where players you follow start playing (with mutable option per player) - TV enhancements: Current games section for players you follow and streamers, menu to go to previously opened games, previous two games in player TV just like in category TV - Ctrl-right/left to play a random move from the available ones in the list.

- (2023-11-05) Felix Led: Thank you, siderite! :D I was in contact with the developer of lichess tools, because it didnt work at my pc at first. Siderite helped me out a lot over discord and we discovered, that my OS was the problem: I have windows 7 on my pc. Lichess tools seems not to work on a windows 7 system. On another laptop with windows 10 it worked fine instantly! Thank you for your awesome lichess tool, Siderite, and for your help! :D For all other users: Lichess tools only works with windows 10 or higher! Greetings Endspiellehrer
- (2023-10-15) D B: Well documented, fills a functional niche of things I have been looking for. But now testing it. I am looking for chess variations tress navigation control from user-end and that seems to be the driving force behind the proposed features. It is rich in many features. Perhaps Lichess could find inspiration in there.
