Open source set of front-end applications for solving specific polyform puzzles
Version: 1Polyform Puzzler is a free and open source software for exploring and solving polyform puzzles, written in Python.
Operating System: Mac OS X
Polyform Puzzler includes solvers for: pentominoes/polyominoes, solid pentominoes, Soma cubes, polyhexes, polysticks, polycubes, polyiamonds, and more to come.
Polyforms are sets of all possible shapes constructed from multiple basic units (squares, triangles, etc.) following some simple rules. These shapes can then be combined into larger shapes, often in many different ways. These are polyform puzzles.
Polyform Puzzler consists of a set of front-end applications for specific polyform puzzles and a Python library that does the heavy lifting. New polyforms and new puzzles can easily be defined and added.
