Welcome to Golly, a sophisticated tool for exploring Conway's
Game of Life and other cellular automata.
- Unbounded universe (limited only by memory).
- Fast, memory-efficient conventional algorithm.
- Use hashing to see large patterns evolve at huge time scales.
- Responsive even while generating or garbage collecting.
- Reads RLE, Life 1.05/1.06, dblife, and macrocell formats.
- Can also read common graphic formats: BMP, PNG, GIF, TIFF.
- Includes a state-of-the-art pattern collection.
- Supports other Life-like rules and Wolfram's 1D rules.
- Fast loading of large patterns.
- Paste in patterns from the clipboard.
- Unlimited undo/redo.
- Unbounded zooming out for astronomical patterns.
- Auto fit option keeps a generating pattern within view.
- Full screen option (no menu/status/tool/scroll bars).
- Supports multiple layers, including cloned layers.
- HTML-based help with integrated Life Lexicon.
- Scriptable via Perl or Python.
- User-configurable keyboard shortcuts.
- Free, open source and cross-platform (Windows, Mac, Linux).
- We also provide bgolly, a GUI-less version.
