Python script to generate evolving wallpapers for Ubuntu that mutate based on the rules of Conways Game of Life. Comments and suggestions welcome. REQUIREMENTS: python PIL numpy scipy Instructions: - Load the initial cell pattern in test.lif or in any other file (change the path in the config appropriately). - The file must be a LIF 1.06 file. - Change the resolution in config.py to the resolution of your screen, change the paths to appropriate paths on your computer and change any other settings you may want to. - Run gol.py - Set the generated xml as your wallpaper. This is still a very rough implementation, needs lots of cleanup and tuning. My first time doing anything in image processing/numpy so some things may be very inefficient. The implementation of the Game of Life Simulation was taken mostly take from Dhananjay Nene's talk at inpycon2010 http://in.pycon.org/2010/talks/66-functional-programming-with-python The function to calculate Eucledian Distance Transform was taken from here: http://www.logarithmic.net/pfh/blog/01185880752 TO-DO: - [DONE] Write a parser for .lif files so loading of initial cell configuration becomes easier. - Figure out how to amplify the colour variations - Optimise the simulation
