lichess-client npm package

I just published lichess-client to npm. this is my first package I’ve published to npm in a few years. It was a small project, but still fun to put together with the intent to eventually publish it.

So why write my own client for lichess? Well, I probably could’ve used someone else’s project, but where’s (what’s?) the fun in that? The real reason is that I have a nebulous idea for some chess performance tracking application I’d like to build in the future. I figured that controlling how the information was piped from lichess to my application would make things easier for that project.

If you’ve recently been thinking about building an application in node on top of lichess data, please utilize lichess-client and give me some feedback!
