ChessX is a free Open Source Chess Database for Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X. The project uses Qt library to create modern, portable graphical interface. Current development is aimed at providing full featured PGN database. Afterwards we will add more flexible native format.


The project was started after development of Scid halted and contact with the author was lost. Initially, ChessX was to be a community maintained version of Scid called "New Scid". However, after some initial development, it was decided to break away from the old code so that new ideas and modern interface can be implemented.

Main features:

  • Multi-platform. Supports Linux, Microsoft Windows and Mac OS
  • Read-only support for PGN Files
  • Work with multiple databases simultaneously
  • Browse games
  • Navigate through game, including variations
  • Copy/Paste FEN/PGN
  • Enter moves, setup board position
  • Basic header search (click on columns in GameList header)
  • Player database with picture support
