Description: ======
ConwayCPU
======

ConwayCPU is an implementation of Conway's game of Life that
lives in a console window. The rules of the game have been changed
slightly to allow for the influence of your computer's CPU usage.
ConwayCPU's life is more virile (look for the yellow cells!)
when your CPU is busy--and returns to its normal self when your
computer is idle.

This project is a half-baked idea of mine that I hope you enjoy, but
I want to credit Eric Rose and Giampaolo Rodola for their packages,
which made this much easier to create.

.. _psutil library: https://pypi.python.org/pypi/psutil
.. _original conway package: https://pypi.python.org/pypi/conway/1.1
.. _Blessings terminal library: http://pypi.python.org/pypi/blessings/


Features
========

* Runs a fullscreen Game of Life world in your console.
* Makes Life more interesting by "loosening the rules" probabilistically
according to how active the CPU is. Yellow colored cells in the game are
the ones created by CPU activity.


Getting it running
==================

::

pip install conwayCPU
conwayCPU.py

Sit back and enjoy Life.

Kudos
=====

A very simple extension of the pip package 'conway'. Credit to Eric Rose
for the original package.
