Combining reactive programming with a data-modeling language and an entity-component-system seems useful... but how to implement it?
@longor I'm super curious about more of your thoughts. I've been wanting to build a powerful open source block voxel game engine (.. that's a handful!) and ECS has been on my mind for years now.
Also, which language(s) are you using? Your other toot had a picture with one I don't recognize.
@copygirl *forgets mastodon existed, for a week*...
Well... having researched bloxel engines for nearly a decade as a hobby, I recently began sharing the resulting ideas&concepts, and apparently people like 'em!
Yes, ECS can be quite useful for bloxels... if done right.
The 'language' in that picture is a declarative data definition format, based on LISP and JSON: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Longor1996/TCGE/master/docs/cdml.ebnf
(The linked repository is a universal bloxel engine, written in rust... it's a extremely slow work-in-progress)
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
