Laby is a maze editor, generator & solver written in Java. It can solve mazes with the following search algorithms: DFS, BFS, ID, Best-First, Hill Climbing and A*. Also, using a variation of DFS algorithm, it can generate two types of mazes, randomized and classic. The generated mazes can be easily edited and saved as plain text files.
- generates 2 types of mazes
- dynamic maze editor
- 6 algorithms for maze solving
- 2 heuristic functions
- step by step execution
- execution step delay
- option for choosing cells randomly
- option to draw arrows from predecessors
There are two versions available; the full version with GUI, and one without GUI implemented so that you can use it for your own applications. There is also one compiled jar. You need JRE 8 or later to run the jar and JDK 8 or later to build the project.
About editing: Left click to add obstacles and right click to remove them from the maze. You can drag and drop the start and goal cells to any position. You can save your maze as a plain text file from the File menu.
