Game of Life with a Virus


This is Conway's Game of Life with a small bit of interactivity.

An observer can click on a square to "infect" it, which turn its living color into a semi-transparent red.

Then, whenever the infected cell is live, it will in turn infect its living neighbors.

The only cure to the virus is clicks!!!

To run

Open dist/index.html in a browser and start clickin'. If you go into the console, there are two global vars exposed so you can go to town.

  1. svg is a d3 selection of the svg element on the page
  2. sim is the simulation object. see src/simulation.js if you want to use it's (not at all finalized) interface.
