Conway's Game of Life in Go

Build Status

This is a simple, and probably naïve, implementation of Conway's Game of Life, written in Go.

Dependencies

The version on master uses NCurses through the termbox-go library. The go get command below will fetch it, if you don't already have it.

Installation

Next, get this code and install it

go get github.com/joeygibson/life

and you will have an executable called life in the $GOPATH/bin directory.

Running

Just typing life will run a game with all parameters set to their defaults. You can run life -h to get a list of options and what their defaults are.

Developing

If you want to make changes to this program, you'll need to run dep ensure to get the dependencies.
