Description [en]

Golly is an open source, cross-platform application for exploring Conway's Game of Life and other cellular automata. The primary authors are Andrew Trevorrow and Tom Rokicki, with code contributions by Tim Hutton, Dave Greene, Jason Summers, Maks Verver, Robert Munafo and Brenton Bostick.


Wikipedia:

Golly is a tool for the simulation of cellular automata. It is free open-source software written by Andrew Trevorrow and Tomas Rokicki; it runs on Linux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Windows, OS X, iOS, and Android, and can be scripted using Perl or Python.
It includes a hashlife algorithm that can simulate the behavior of very large sparse patterns in Conway's Game of Life such as Paul Rendell's Life universal Turing machine, and that is fast enough to simulate some patterns for 232 or more time units. It also includes a large library of predefined patterns in Life and other rules.

Features

☑ Supports bounded and unbounded universes, with cells of up to 256 states.
☑ Supports multiple algorithms, including Bill Gosper's super fast hashlife algorithm.
☑ Many different types of CA are included: John von Neumann's 29-state CA, Wolfram's 1D rules, WireWorld, Generations, Langton's Loops, Paterson's Worms, etc.
☑ The RuleTable and RuleTree algorithms let you plug in new rules.
☑ Responsive even while generating or garbage collecting.
☑ Reads RLE, macrocell, Life 1.05/1.06, dblife, and MCell files.
☑ Can also read common graphic formats: BMP, PNG, GIF, TIFF.
☑ Can extract patterns, rules and scripts from zip files.
☑ Can download patterns, rules and scripts from online archives.
☑ Includes a state-of-the-art pattern collection.
☑ Can paste in patterns from the clipboard.
☑ Unlimited undo/redo.
☑ Configurable keyboard shortcuts.
☑ Auto fit option keeps patterns sized to the window.
☑ Full screen option (no menu/status/tool/scroll bars).
☑ Supports multiple layers, including cloned layers.
☑ HTML-based help with an integrated Life Lexicon.
☑ Scriptable via Perl or Python.
☑ Runs on Windows (XP+), Mac OS X (10.6+) and Linux (with GTK+ 2.x).

Test [fr]

Test (2.1) :
L'interface est soignée et réussie.
Le gameplay consiste à tester/créer différents modèles et à observer leur comportement.
Excellent. Très divertissant.
