This is a fractal algorithm I created for generating mazes. I think it's pretty neat. The original was written in C for a computer science class I was taking at UCSC. This version is in Python. The original would print spaces and hashes (#) to display the maze. This version also generates HTML.

This generates a random maze with no loops. It is a spanning tree -- a connected, undirected graph that uses all the vertices in a graph with no cycles.
