NOTE This project is currently undergoing significant rework
An L-System or Lindenmayer system is a parallel rewriting system, namely a
variant of a formal grammar, most famously used to model the growth
processes of plant development, but also able to model the morphology of
a variety of organisms.
This project is written using Clojure, demonstrating L-System
re-writing, deployed to Heroku:
Pre-defined examples can be generated using these links:
You will need Leiningen 2.6.1 or above installed.
To build and start the service locally, run:
$ cd lindenmayer-systems $ lein deps $ lein ring server-headless
To build and run a standalone jar:
$ lein ring uberjar $ java -jar target/lindenmayer-systems-0.2.0-SNAPSHOT-standalone.jar
In both instances, the webapp starts on http://localhost:3000.
A docker image is available as richardhull/lindenmayer-systems,
and can be downloaded and started with:
$ docker pull richardhull/lindenmayer-systems $ docker run --name lindenmayer-systems -d -p 3000:3000 richardhull/lindenmayer-systems
