apecs

Build Status Hackage Stackage

apecs is an Entity Component System (ECS) framework inspired by specs and Entitas. The front-end DSL uses a small set of combinators to concisely express game logic, which then translate to fast primitive operations on back-end stores. Both the DSL and storage framework can easily be extended to meet any performance/expressivity needs.

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

  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
