John Horton Conway, the creator of Game of Life, has just passed away. Upon reading about this I realized I have never implemented Game of Life myself. So on that note, I decided to have a go.
I had a game dynamic idea quite a few years ago that reoccurred in my mind today. It’s quite simple, so I decided to recreate it in vanilla JS rendering to a 2D canvas. I even wrote it in ES5, compatible even with Internet Explorer (from version 9, I suppose, but only tested in IE11).
