Thread for PatMan (Pattern Manager)

Post by Book » November 30th, 2021, 2:36 pm

The beta for PatMan (Pattern Manager) can now be viewed and run at https://golhobby.com/patman/.

PatMan lets you organize your pattern collection(s) and run them in LifeViewer. Or it will, as soon as I get it out of beta and make it available to download.

I run it on my home PC (Windows-IIS-localhost) and public-facing on a hosted linux server, so it should run on any web server.

Questions etc. are welcomed.

I've added jslife and several other collections to my PatMan 1.0. It also has a link you can use to download the app and use it to display your own collections and run them in LifeViewer.

Check it out at https://golhobby.com/patman/

Patman users should download the most recent LifeViewer JavaScript plug-in. Fixes the black hole bug, https://lazyslug.com/lifeview/plugin/js ... -plugin.js

PatMan 1.3 adds support for apgcodes (xs, xp, xq) (https://golhobby.com/patman/).
  • You can use an apgcode instead of an rle in a pattern's txt file
  • You can enter an apgcode instead of an rle in the Enter RLE function

Patman needs RLEs in txt files. When I ported the new Golly Life collection, it occurred to me that others might need a simple way to change all the rle extensions in a folder and its subs to txt, so here's the Windows bat file I use:

Code: Select all

@ECHO OFF
PUSHD .
FOR /R %%d IN (.) DO (
cd "%%d"
IF EXIST *.rle (
REN *.rle *.txt
)
)
POPD
Just save this as a bat file in the desired folder, double-click on it, and poof!

I assume you mean the list box overlapping the viewer. Fixed, thanks for reporting.

Aha! Don't know how that got there, but I just removed it. So you actually found two bugs. Thanks.

The purpose of the collection is to have at least one example for each n. I will gladly add these and others anyone contributes.
