This is my quick python implementation of Conway's Game of Life.

Seed files


  • Hard-coded to use python 2.4 and hard-coded python location (I'm using macports to get pygame working with OS 10.6)
  • Pygame1.9 (via macports)
  • Numeric (via macports)

Todo items:

  • Allow board dimensions and scale to be specified via command line.
  • Move game classes into separate module to allow for writing simple. simulations without worrying about underlying game code
  • Don't force simulation code to know about pygame module
  • More colors
  • Start/stop buttons on screen
  • Unit tests for game code
