Conway's Game of Life as jQuery plugin

About

Overview

This piece of code implements Conway's Game of Life as a jQuery plugin.

It supports separate layers of activity, each one simulating its own conway universe. Different layers use different colors. The colors of overlapping active cells from different layers are mixed for your viewing pleasure.

Dependencies

This code relies on the jQuery xcolor plugin. This can be found here: http://www.xarg.org/project/jquery-color-plugin-xcolor/

Usage

  1. You need to define a div element like so:
<div id="letsrock"></div>
  1. Then call the conway plugin:
<script type="text/javascript">
    $(document).ready(function() {
        $('#letsrock').conway({
            rows: 8,
            cols: 16
        });
        $('#letsrock').conway('start');
    });
</script>
