Feature Suggestion: Pattern Search

As the title says, I am proposing (selfishly) that we add a pattern search to check our own game records and extract data from it (sorta like the lichess opening explorer or OpeningTree in chess),

I know most of you can download Kombilo and run that with downloaded games, but unfortunately I am on mac (with apple’s special chip), and there have been no updates on that since 2016 and I’m not aware of another program that I can use to do that kind of pattern searching on my own games to look for patterns in my play (such as openings or josekis I consistently underperform with, and thus might want to study more)

Plus I think it’s fun to poke at that kind of pattern search with your own games, or even a large database of games such as on this server, so I would much appreciate if such a feature got considered and hope it wouldn’t be too incredibly much hassle to implement


I can’t (not Mac, just incompetence), so I’m seconding this.

I hadn’t thought about it before, but now I want it. :slight_smile:


We’re moderately close to being able to do this. At least, some foundations have tentatively been put in place :slight_smile:

It’s not at the top of anyone’s list right now, but at least we don’t have to move this suggestion to the “Features we’ll never have” thread :wink:


I would like this, as one main reason I wanted to bulk download my games was to run pattern search across them. (The other being a permanent archive should OGS ever die).

glad to hear the foundations are in place,
I can only sorta imagine putting together the hash table required for a pattern search

as I know there is a website to search the opening. whatever global or local.
But I understand the function at lichess. search passed joseki at corner. Im same interessant for that in OGS for reviewing

Yes, but waltheri only works for pro games, not personal or server-wide games
