The SGF standard and other technical resources

I found the SGF file format standard whilst poking around on (the site where Sensei’s Library and the old Go Teaching Ladder stuff is hosted).

Although it’s not actually hosted on

Yeah both the KGS site KGS: SGF Editor

and Wikipedia article Smart Game Format - Wikipedia

link there as well.

Huh, I linked to the Sensei’s Library page but not to the actual specification.

Although even that is a hub page, and this (HTML) / this (PDF) is the document itself.

When I wrote my bot and searched for “Go text protocol” I was very happy to land on that page.
