Generate fractal trails by the "iterated subset" construction, iteratively replacing each segment with a given pattern.


Iterated subset algorithm

iterTrail :: Trail' Line R2 -> [Trail' Line R2] Source

Given a "seed pattern", produce a list of successive refinements, where the nth trail in the list has iteratively had all segments replaced by the seed pattern n times, starting from a horizontal line. In other words, the zeroth trail in the output list is a horizontal unit segment, and each subsequent trail is equal to the previous with all segments replaced by the seed pattern.

import Diagrams.TwoD.Path.IteratedSubset
iterTrailEx = vcat' (with & sep .~ 0.3) . map strokeLine . take 5
            $ iterTrail koch

refineSegment :: Trail' Line R2 -> Segment Closed R2 -> Maybe (Trail' Line R2) Source

Use a trail to "refine" a segment, returning a scaled and/or rotated copy of the trail with the same endpoint as the segment.


Example seed trails


koch :: (TrailLike t, V t ~ R2) => t Source

Seed for the Koch curve (side of the famous Koch snowflake).

levy :: (TrailLike t, V t ~ R2) => t Source

Seed for the Lévy dragon curve.

zag :: (TrailLike t, V t ~ R2) => t Source

Strange zig-zag seed that produces a dense fractal path with lots of triangles.

sqUp :: (TrailLike t, V t ~ R2) => t Source

A "square impulse" seed which produces a quadratic von Koch curve.

sqUpDown :: (TrailLike t, V t ~ R2) => t Source

A "double square impulse" seed which produces fantastic rectilinear spiral patterns.

sqUpDown' :: (TrailLike t, V t ~ R2) => t Source

Like sqUpDown but with cubicSpline applied to produce a curvy version.

Other stuff

A random collection of other fun things you can do with iterTrail. There is no particular emphasis on making these configurable or generic; the point is just to suggest some fun things you can do. If you want to play with them, copy the source code and modify it as you see fit.

snowflake :: Int -> Trail R2 Source

The famous Koch snowflake, made by putting three Koch curves together. snowflake n yields an order-n snowflake.

sqUpDownOverlay :: Renderable (Path R2) b => Diagram b R2 Source

A cool diagram featuring successive iterations of sqUpDown' superimposed atop one another.

data IterTrailConfig Source

Parameters to generate an iterated subset fractal.




seed :: Trail' Line R2

The seed trail

color :: Colour Double

The line color to use

iters :: Int

Number of iterations

randITC :: (MonadRandom m, Applicative m) => m IterTrailConfig Source

Generate a random IterTrailConfig. This features many hard-coded values. If you want to play with it just copy the code and modify it to suit.

drawITC :: Renderable (Path R2) b => IterTrailConfig -> Diagram b R2 Source

Generate an iterated subset fractal based on the given parameters.

drawITCScaled :: (Renderable (Path R2) b, Backend b R2) => IterTrailConfig -> Diagram b R2 Source

Like drawITC, but also scales, centers, and pads the result so that it fits nicely inside a 4x4 box.

randIterGrid :: (Renderable (Path R2) b, Backend b R2) => IO (Diagram b R2) Source

Create a grid of 100 random iterated subset fractals. Impress your friends!
