A chessboard is the type of game board used for the game of chess, on which pawns and chess pieces are placed. A chessboard is usually square, with an alternating pattern of squares of two colors. In this article, I’ll walk you through how to create and visualize a chessboard with the Python programming language.
Create a Chessboard with Python
To create a chessboard with the Python programming language, I will use two Python libraries; Matplotlib for visualization, and NumPy for building an algorithm which will help us to create and visualize a chessboard. Let’s see how we can code to create and visualize a chessboard:
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt import numpy as np from matplotlib.colors import LogNorm dx, dy = 0.015, 0.05 x = np.arange(-4.0, 4.0, dx) y = np.arange(-4.0, 4.0, dy) X, Y = np.meshgrid(x, y) extent = np.min(x), np.max(x), np.min(y), np.max(y) z1 = np.add.outer(range(8), range(8)) % 2 plt.imshow(z1, cmap="binary_r", interpolation="nearest", extent=extent, alpha=1) def chess(x, y): return (1 - x / 2 + x ** 5 + y ** 6) * np.exp(-(x ** 2 + y ** 2)) z2 = chess(X, Y) plt.imshow(z2, alpha=0.7, interpolation="bilinear", extent=extent) plt.title("Chess Board with Python") plt.show()
NOTE – In order to run the project of Python, you have to download Python IDLE or Pycharam. In the video I have explained how to download and install it.
