Join Michele Vallisneri for an in-depth discussion in this video ✓ Solution: functional fractal, part of Python: Programming Efficiently.
- [Instructor] Let me start my solution…by importing all packages and modules.…I've also collected some code from the challenge set-up…and from the video on functional programming in Python,…namely, the definition of the turtle method fb…and the definition of partial functions,…capital F and capital L for turtle forward and left.…Last, the high order function iterated…and we need to add a new partial…for turtle forward and back.…This is very similar to the partial for forward.…
Then, I'll define a function that takes list of steps…and replaces fb steps only…with a branching sequence.…I grabbed the distance from the fb partial.…Here I'm replacing an fb step with a branching sequence.…We have some turns and some shorter fb steps,…everything else we leave alone.…We can iterate funcbranch starting from a single segment…to obtain a fractal tree.…
Here's a single forward and back segment…and then I need to build a terrarium around my solution.…All done.…We can play it again with an animation.…
