  • Show HN: Lifeee – Conway’s Game of Life with an infinite zoomable grid
    8 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 12 Nov 2021
    Hi all! Here is the latest Rust side project I’ve been working on for the past couple of weeks: Lifeee, an implementation of John Conway’s Game of Life.

    It was the opportunity for me to continue my Rust learning journey, and I think I’m finally starting to feel a bit comfortable with the language, especially ownership :). I also wanted to discover what was possible when using Rust for frontend development, and I must say I was so impressed by Yew! I didn’t think it would be so nice to use, especially since I have quite some experience with React.

    A big difference compared to the various implementations you can find (often in Rust and Yew tutorials) is that the grid is infinite. This means that you can drag it to move in all directions, but also zoom in and out. This was probably the most challenging part of my project and involved a lot of calculus and doodles in my notebook! Also, since I used a canvas to draw the grid (and not DOM elements), the simulation is pretty fast even when a lot of cells are displayed :D

    What I learned during this project:

    - Use Yew [1] for frontend development: not very different from writing React components, with the advantages of Rust as a plus!

    - Serialize/deserialize data: the available Game of Life patterns are extracted from the official Lexicon [2]; I parsed the text version to generate a serialized version (separate library: [3]) that I then import and deserialize in the app.

    - Build the web app using GitHub actions and deploy it using Netlify: pretty straightforward using Trunk [4] as a bundler (also used for development).

    You can find the source code of the app on GitHub [5]. Please tell me what you think of it! ;)

    I've seen some pretty interesting things like the use of Rust for front end development, like yew[1] and Seed[2].

    There aren't many languages that are practical for WASM output. Scripting and managed languages need to ship their interpreters and runtimes with their WASM blobs, and can end up relatively large. JavaScript's interpreter and runtime are baked into every browser already.

    That leaves only compiled and unmanaged languages for potentially good WASM targets. As mentioned before, Rust is seeing a lot development in that space. If LLVM can compile it, then Emscripten can output it to WASM.

    The biggest difference between Iced.rs and Yew is that while Yew is purely for building web apps, Iced’s focus is actually on cross-platform applications; the web is only one of several platforms you can build an application for.

    I initially meant to use Rails as a way to learn it, but missed Rust too much and switched to Yew for the frontend and Diesel and Tide for the backend. I'm trying to force myself to care more about finishing the project (and quickly getting it into production!) than making everything perfect, which is difficult for me.

    We’re using Yew to build the Wasm-based frontend. We add some more utility libraries for routing and error and JSON handling, as well as an internal dependency to our common library, which will hold the code shared between the frontend and backend.

What are some alternatives?
