Re: Golly suggestions

Algorithms except for QuickLife and Larger than Life support timelines, but no script command to operate on timelines exists. So I'd request for the relevant python and lua functions, particularly the ability to go to a specific generation (which may be forwards or backwards) within the record. A b...

Re: Golly bugs

EDIT: in case it helps, in Javascript Module['canvas'] and Module.canvas are equivalent. That doesn't seem to be the case. I got some weird errors on all browsers when trying to load webGolly after switching to Module.canvas. I've uploaded a new build of webGolly that hopefully supports mouse wheel...

Re: Golly bugs

... Firefox (what I used and experienced the bug) apparently only provides the event.deltaY . I downloaded the latest version of Firefox (104.0) for my Mac and tried webGolly. Using the mouse wheel to zoom in/out works fine, so I'm puzzled why it isn't working in your Firefox. Which version are you...

Re: Golly bugs

Zooming in and out with the mouse wheel does not work at all. Which OS and browser are you using? Have you tried forcing the page to reload? (There was a new build uploaded to fix a mouse wheel bug.) You said you're familiar with JavaScript programming, so if reloading webGolly doesn't fix the prob...

Re: Golly bugs

The mouse wheel works but the sensitivity is not good for my mouse. I assume you mean it's too sensitive rather than not sensitive enough?

Update confirmed. Thank you! But zooming in or out the canvas with mouse wheel (laptop) or two fingers (mobile) seems to be not supported.
I've uploaded a new build that should fix this (works on Safari and Chrome on my Mac).

Re: DominoLife (CA on aperiodic domino tilings)

Because the Domino tiling is not periodic, tiles can have quite different neighborhoods: neighbors.png The yellow tile on the left has 9 neighbors (the maximum number) made up of 6 orange tiles that share an edge and 3 red tiles that only share a corner. The yellow tile on the right has only 5 neigh...

I've written a Lua script called DominoLife that lets you explore various CA rules on aperiodic domino tilings. The tilings are created using simple substitution rules, as in these two examples: https://tilings.math.uni-bielefeld.de/substitution/domino/ https://tilings.math.uni-bielefeld.de/substitu...

I discovered in 4.1 on macOS 11.6 that if a Python script calls a function in a separate script, Golly will not recompile the separate script if it is updated and the script which calls it is rerun.
