pgn4web is a javascript chess games viewer for websites, blogs and live broadcasts.

"pgn4web has a clean design, and is easily integrated and configured in wordpress. And yet, below that layer of simplicity, it has enough bells and whistles to allow for more baroque needs and taste. A truly great plugin." GM Tiger Hillarp, using the pgn4web plugin for wordpress on his site chess at the bag of cats, May 2013.

"We wanted a live viewer that could work on tablets and mobile phones. pgn4web did fit very well on every platform, is stable and matched our visual design. Also the horizontal view for the commentators and the vertical view for smartphones was a real plus." H.S. from the Max Euwe memorial tournament committee, using pgn4web for live broadcast and game reports, November 2011.
