Chess diagram for website


I want to create a website for Polish chess composition.
Would anybody suggest a chess(board) package that is (1st) most suitable for composition and (2nd) the easiest to maintain.
I'm not a website programmer. While creating this I will need to do a little bit of learning/reminding. That is why I don't specify the programming technology.

Thanks for help!

Back in my day (2005) I have used the PGNtoJS program, but nowadays there are probably better possibilities. ChessBase provides an interesting tool that does the same, but also the script used on the ARVES website is good enough. You will have to ask Peter Boll.
On some Wikipedia version (EN, I think) there was also a kind of PGN conversion as a beta tool for their articles. I don't know if it still exists.

Unfortunately I don't know of any script suited for fairy chess. I don't use the solving programs, so I can't tell you if WinChloé or Alybadix or what their names are have something you search.

Shankar has trying out Peter Wongs colorful diagrams and they work very well.

You may find a comparison of the several technologies used nowadays in Marián Križovenský's lecture of the Marianka festival 2015, check video #8.

In my opinion, the most advanced and modern tool is Dmitry Turevsky's Py2Web,

Thank you all for your replies.
