So there's this service that let's you record your actions in the terminal. This led me to play around with python.
Here's a demo of what I mean.
So what happends if I play with the colors of the terminal?
Playing with colors is fun. Let's show how a random sorting algorithm sorts.
We can even go all the way by playing a version of the game of life. Below I'm simulating random noise with something from an accumulated ising model. It feels slightly mesmerizing.
I call 'coding in train'-time well spent. One can imagine some education fun to be had using this tool too if people are just learning python from the terminal.
There's a gist here with all the code, to all those who are interested.
