AEI - Arimaa Engine Interface
The Arimaa Engine Interface is a flexible and easy to implement protocol for communication with Arimaa playing programs.
- AEI Protocol Standard: gives the details of the protocol.
- readme.rst: from the standard implementation package. Gives an overview of the included scripts.
- The usage.rst file gives some basic instructions on using the various scripts.
This includes a controller for connecting to the arimaa.com gameroom, a few scripts for performing various tasks with engines and a small sample engine
The implementation uses python 2 and the latest release can be installed with pip using:
pip install aei
On an operating system with a system supplied python you probably want to keep the aei install separate from your system installed packages. To accomplish that you can use either a virtualenv or user install. A user install is done simply by adding the ``--user`` option:
pip install --user aei
The latest development source code can be found on github.
Bugs and enhancement requests can be reported in the github tracker.
Questions or discussion regarding the protocol or implementation is best done in the arimaa.com bot development forum.
