|-Jolly (inspired by Golly) is an online "Game of Life" simulator implemented with HTML5 and JS|
|-There are a number of features which differentiate Jolly from other online implementation of the game of life.|
|+Jolly differs from other online implementations in that it has a number of advanced features. The following is a brief overview of why we think Jolly deserves your attention.|
|-1. Implements hashlife|
|-2. Reads RLE and Cells files|
|-3. UI (based on canvas) with zoom in/out|
|+4. Load pattern files. If you jump to http://www.conwaylife.com/wiki/ you will find hundreds of various pattern files. Jolly can load RLE and Plaintext file so that you don�t have to implement patterns by hand.|
|+5. UI goodness. Jolly implements the standard UI features you would expect. You can zoom in and out, run, step, stop and clear the canvas.|
|+Planned Features (short term):|
|+1. A spiffier look and feel. We realise that we have to make Jolly more visually appealing. Colours, buttons and nifty visual effects are what we want. If you can help � please do!|
|+2. Refactoring. Our code is beautiful but not always. One task is to refactor the code to make it more elegant and inspiring.|
|+3. Bug fixes and tests. Yes, we might have a few bugs to squash and a few more tests (qunit) to implement.|
|+4. More pattern files. At the moment Jolly can load two types of files (RLE and Plaintext). Support for other pattern formats is coming. You will also be able to save pattern files to your computer.|
|+5. User settings. Soon you will be able to tweak how Jolly looks and works for you. Settings will be stored locally on your computer.|
