A Game of Life implementation in JavaScript

Latest commit dc45c4d Dec 19, 2011 @fkling Changed Grid implementation.
Grid uses three canvas' now to draw the whole scene.
This way, redraws of static areas such as the background
can be avoided. 

It should perform faster now. In addition, it should
be possible now to easily integrate the GOL in existing
pages (untested).

A simple Game of Life implementation, featuring an (theoretical) infinite grid and local game storage.

Planned features:

  • Integrating example patterns which are backed by the repository. This would also make it easy for anyone to add new examples to the main page (pull-request to me).
  • Importing and exporting of patterns/games.
  • Letting the user define his own rules.

If possible, I would like to make this a suitable applications for teaching purposes, if you have any suggestion how to improve this application, please drop me a line.
