GameOfLifeView

This is a custom Android view which displays Conway's Game of Life. I've done to display the results of my learnings of Test Driven Development.

Setup

Gradle:

dependencies {
    compile 'com.github.thiagokimo:gameoflifeview:1.0.2'
}

Maven:

<dependency>
    <groupId>com.github.thiagokimo</groupId>
    <artifactId>gameoflifeview</artifactId>
    <version>1.0.2</version>
</dependency>

Usage

Through XML

<io.kimo.gameoflifeview.view.GameOfLifeView
  android:layout_width="match_parent"
  android:layout_height="match_parent"
  game_of_life_view:proportion="20"
  game_of_life_view:aliveCellColor="#FF0000"
  game_of_life_view:deadCellColor="#0000FF"/>

Through Code

Initialize the view:

@Override 
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
  super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
  gameOfLifeView = new GameOfLifeView(this);
  gameOfLifeView.setProportion(20);
  gameOfLifeView.setDeadColor(Color.RED);
  gameOfLifeView.setAliveColor(Color.BLUE);
  setContentView(gameOfLifeView);
}

...and run the game with:

  gameOfLifeView.begin();

Custom params

From now you can customize the attributes:

  • Proportion: The value which the view will use to calculate the cell size and the number of columns and rows the game will have.
  • Colors: Dead and alive cells can have any given color.
