Last time out we implemented the Dragon Curve example from the L-System wikipedia page. Now, we’re finally at the end of our journey, let’s see how we can implement the Fractal Plant example in Elm.
Example 7 : Fractal Plant
Let’s start by defining our L-System:
Here’s how it looks, by gen 7 the plant looks pretty good!
In fact, with the implementation we ended up with, we can use it to support any number of L-Systems so long:
- ‘F’ is the only symbol that means “draw forward”
- we can programmatically change the angle for ‘–’ and ‘+’ (easy!)
with that, let’s take a couple of the examples from LSystemBot’s tweets and see them in action!
So that’s it guys, hope you’ve enjoyed this series! Please let me know via the comments if you like to see more mini-series like this one.
Live Demo (here)
Use LEFT and RIGHT arrow keys to evolve/devolve the L-System.
