Revolver

Given a number of tests, Revolver uses genetic algorithms to write, or rather try to write, a Ruby program that satisfies those tests.

Why on earth

FUN!

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'revolver'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install revolver

Usage

require 'revolver'

# Write a program that returns a number between -500 and 500.
Revolver.new
  .return_value_should(-> retval { retval > -500 })
  .return_value_should(-> retval { retval < 500 })
  .go!

If ENV['VERBOSE'] is set, it will spit out all the programs of all the generations as they are being written.
