apecs: Fast ECS framework for game programming

[ bsd3, control, data, game, library ] [ Propose Tags ]

Entity-Component-System frameworks provide a game programming paradigm that tackles many of the shortcomings of a more OO-oriented approach. apecs is a type-driven ECS, that leverages strong typing for an expressive DSL that turns into fast game code.

apecs

Build Status Hackage Stackage

apecs is an Entity Component System (ECS) framework inspired by specs and Entitas. ECS presents a data-driven approach to game development, that elegantly tackles many of the unique issues of game programming. The apecs front-end DSL exposes a small number of combinators that allow game logic to be expressive and extremely fast.

Performance

ecs-bench shows that apecs is competitive with the fastest Rust ECS frameworks.

Example

{-# LANGUAGE DataKinds, ScopedTypeVariables, TypeFamilies, MultiParamTypeClasses, TemplateHaskell #-}

import Apecs
import Linear (V2 (..))

newtype Position = Position (V2 Double) deriving Show
-- To declare a component, we need to specify how to store it
instance Component Position where
  type Storage Position = Map Position -- The simplest store is a Map

newtype Velocity = Velocity (V2 Double) deriving Show
instance Component Velocity where
  type Storage Velocity = Cache 100 (Map Velocity) -- Caching adds fast reads/writes

data Flying = Flying
instance Component Flying where
  type Storage Flying = Map Flying

makeWorld "World" [''Position, ''Velocity, ''Flying] -- Generate World and instances

game :: System World ()
game = do
  newEntity (Position 0, Velocity 1)
  newEntity (Position 2, Velocity 1)
  newEntity (Position 1, Velocity 2, Flying)

  -- Add velocity to position
  cmap $ \(Position p, Velocity v) -> Position (v+p)
  -- Apply gravity to non-flying entities
  cmap $ \(Velocity v, _ :: Not Flying) -> Velocity (v - (V2 0 1))
  -- Print a list of entities and their positions
  cmapM_ $ \(Position p, Entity e) -> liftIO . print $ (e, p)

main :: IO ()
main = initWorld >>= runSystem game
