Conway is a dead-simple implementation of Conway's Game Of Life using my Blessings terminal library. It detects your terminal size and color depth and blits a lovely cellular automaton for your ogling pleasure.
- Simple implementation
- Pretty colors
- Few calories
- Nudges itself out of repetitive patterns
Rather than having a zillion features, Conway focuses on clarity of
implementation. It's fun to hack on. Try implementing different
Getting it running
pip install conway conway.py
You should see life explode before your eyes. When you're done, hit control-C, and it'll clean up nicely after itself.
Ripped off a really elegant implementation of the algorithm from Jack Diedrich (and ruined it).
- Use "fullscreen mode" so we don't leave a big white screen behind afterward.
