Displaying a chess board with Julia

I plan to use julia’s chess.jl and Gtk.jl + ImageView.pl to write a custom chess app for our kids to study puzzles. [ We want to record what the kids did with elapsed time etc for e.g. Polgar’s ~5000 problems:) ]
[ The initial plan is
to set up 64 canvas with alternating background colors,
from a FEN spec , put up piece images in EPS format
so that the board can be resized.
Any advice ? ]
Before I dive into it further, I would like to find out if there are already some julia codes for setting up a GUI chess board.
