Conway's Game of Life - Coffeescript

Build Status

This is is my first attempt to build a coffeescript version of Conway's Game of Life. It comes after my ruby version, so it will probably look like that one in the end.

My goal for this funny exercise is to increase my confidence with TDD on javascript.

I am trying to make it as modular as possible, the game in itself is contained in the Game and Board classes, while the visualization is handled via adapters such as the included ConsoleAdapter, so later I can develop more adapters without cluttering the code in the game classes.


  cd coffee && coffee


The game is tested with the jasmine framework. To run the specs you must install the jasmine-node npm package, if you haven't already.

  npm install jasmine-node -g
  jasmine-node spec --coffee
