Sanmill is a free, powerful UCI-like N men's morris program with CUI, Flutter GUI and Qt GUI.
Nine men's morris is a strategy board game for two players dating at least to the Roman Empire. The game is also known as nine-man morris, mill, mills, the mill game, merels, merrills, merelles, marelles, morelles, and ninepenny marl in English.
This distribution of Sanmill consists of the following files:
Readme.md, the file you are currently reading.
Copying.txt, a text file containing the GNU General Public License version 3.
src, a subdirectory containing the full source code, including a Makefile that can be used to compile Sanmill CUI on Unix-like systems.
src/ui/flutter_app, a subdirectory containing a Flutter frontend.
src/ui/qt, a subdirectory containing a Qt frontend.
Sanmill CUI has support for 32 or 64-bit CPUs, certain hardware instructions, big-endian machines such as Power PC, and other platforms.
It should be easy to compile Sanmill directly from the source code on Unix-like systems with the included Makefile in the folder
src. Generally, it is recommended to run
make help to see a list of make targets with corresponding descriptions.
cd src make help make build ARCH=x86-64-modern
When reporting an issue or a bug, please tell us which version and compiler you used to create your executable. This information can be found by typing the following commands in a console:
If you have started using Ubuntu or any Ubuntu-based Linux distribution, you must install Qt by running the following command as root:
sudo apt-get install qt5-default qtmultimedia5-dev qtcreator
Use Qt Creator to open
millgame.pro , or use Visual Studio to open
millgame.sln to build Qt Application.
./flutter-init.sh , copy
src/ui/flutter_app/android/key.properties, modify it, and then use IntelliJ IDEA or Visual Studio Code to open
src/ui/flutter_app to build Flutter App.
We use compile-time environment configs to enable specific parts of the code:
testto prepare the app for Monkey and Appium testing. (References to external sites are going to be disabled.)
dev_modeto show the developer mode without needing to enable it first.
catcherto control the use of catcher. (This is on by default and needs to be disabled when required.)
All environment configs can be combined and take a value of bool like:
flutter run --dart-define catcher=false dev_mode=true
For ease of use, some launch configs for IntelliJ IDEA or Visual Studio Code are available. Just select the
needed one in the
Run and Debug or
Run/Debug Configurations tab.
Sanmill's improvement over the last couple of years has been a great community effort. There are a few ways to help contribute to its growth.

Sanmill is free and distributed under the GNU General Public License version 3 (GPL v3). Essentially, this means you are free to do almost exactly what you want with the program, including distributing it among your friends, making it available for download from your website, selling it (either by itself or as part of some bigger software package), or using it as the starting point for a software project of your own.
The only real limitation is that whenever you distribute Sanmill in some way, you must always include the full source code or a pointer to where the source code can be found. If you make any changes to the source code, these changes must also be made available under the GPL.
