I'm happy to announce a new package called Créatúr (creatur)

Créatúr is a software framework for automating experiments with artificial life
(ALife) or other evolutionary algorithms (EA). It provides a daemon which
ensures that each agent gets its turn to use the CPU. You can use other
applications on the computer at the same time without fear of interfering with
experiments; they will run normally (although perhaps more slowly). Créatúr also
provides a library of modules to help you implement your own ALife species. Even
if you aren't using the Créatúr framework, you may find some of these modules

A tutorial on how to use Créatúr, including lots of examples, is available at

Créatúr (pronounced kray-toor) is an irish word meaning animal, creature, or
unfortunate person.
