Game of Life with JavaScript and Canvas

Hey there! I’m back!

After a long time of silence here in this Blog, I’ll post some new stuff. This time just a little test or example from my labs. I wrote Conways Game of Life in JavaScript and rendered it on a Canvas element.

And yeha, i just like simple like this:

You can find the pages here. It’s only client-side code and not obfuscated or some thing, so feel free to take a look on the uncommented source.

Next step maybe is replace the canvas rendering with divs and dom, cuz … yeha … canvas is just too slow and maybe i’ll post this here again.
