Tetris Tile Trees


Right when I was about to start working on a major improvement to the Mandelbrot program, I was struck with an itch to write a JavaScript applet that takes an arbitrarily shaped grid and tries to tile it with tetris pieces, using standard techniques for traversing search trees. So here it is.

I think it turned out pretty well for the amount of time I put into it. There’s at least one more significant optimization I hope to make, which takes advantage of the fact that connected components are independent.

So that’s all.


There's some javascript trying to load some comments, and if you're reading this, it's probably not working.
