Making GIF Pattern Animations in Python Matplotlib

This code was written by Eleanor Lutz to generate this website.

I learned Python a few months ago from the UW Software Carpentry Course and needed a practice project to work on. This is a script that makes a GIF illustration for any 5-unit color scheme. The script features five different animated patterns, all based on Islamic mosaics.
