A cellular automaton library.

Project description


Vivludo is a library for working with cellular automata in Python.

There are many other PyPI packages for cellular automata, but most of them were not quite what I was looking for, so I decided to make my own. It's not really intended to be a "product", but since I was making it anyways I figured there was no reason not to release it. I can't guarantee support, documentation, and so on.

This package uses a reasonably fast implementation based on convolution (not as fast as whatever Golly uses, though). I think it might be possible to modify it for GPU acceleration (using PyTorch or something), but I haven't tried that.

Vivludo is Esperanto for "Life Game", in reference to Conway's Game of Life, which is one of the most well-known cellular automata.


pip install vivludo

Requires Python 3.5 or greater.


Some usage examples can be found in the examples directory.
I may eventually add actual documentation, but for now there's just the docstrings in the source code.


This package is released under the MIT licence, as described in LICENCE.txt.
