Todo

  • Optimize rendering
    • Perhaps switch from canvas-sketch to a more stable and performant library (or home-grown)
  • Further optimize the algorithm.
    • Use fixed-size data structures instead of arrays?
    • Allocate as much during initialization, before rendering.
    • Measure and optimize Universe.step() function.
    • Measure random-js and prob.js performance to ensure it is not a huge bottleneck.
  • Add camera logic with zoom and tracking.

Known Bugs

  • Rendering performance is currently pretty poor (18-20 fps).
  • There's no keymapping for zooming / reset, yet.

  • build — Build distrobution-friendly files.
