ArtemisD: A D port of Artemis Entity System Framework for games.
ArtemisD: A D port of Artemis Entity System Framework

About Artemis

  Artemis is a high performance Entity System framework for 
games, written in Java,
and is a framework to manage entities in a game world. It is 
inspired by
Entity Systems are the future of MMORPG blog series by Adam 
Martin.
http://t-machine.org/index.php/2007/09/03/entity-systems-are-the-future-of-mmog-development-part-1/

  We also borrowed ideas from Ted Brown who implemented a simple 
high-performance
Entity System in Processing based on Adam Martin's blog.
http://www.openprocessing.org/sketch/18023

  The framework is based on the concept that entities in a game 
world exist as pure
identifiers,their components contain only data, and systems 
process entities based
on their aspects.This promotes separation of concern and 
simplifies game design tremendously.

seem nice - BUT it seems too java oop like and very ungeneric, is there 
a real need to derive from component?

It's simple enough without over design IMO.

yes - if the need of beeing part of the hierachy is not a problem :)
most D libraries try to be more generic and not that strong coupled - 
but that comes from the java background of the project

still nice

Really, generic programming in D is easy and fun, ArtemisD also 
benefits
from it with original design retained.

Just a little note: As it's more readable, you may want to use 
1000.msecs instead of dur!("msecs")(1000) in the example program. 
1000.msecs is the equivalent of the msecs(1000) function call, which 
returns dur!("msecs")(1000).

I'm implementing pretty much the same thing in my project, 
although I'm probably
more in line with the original blog post (e.g. every system can 
only access
specific components of an entity, which are statically 
determined, entities are more lightweight, etc.). I'm using much 
less OOP and more of a generic/metaprogramming approach. 
Currently I'm trying to rewrite the code to add a concept of 
"past" and "future" state; a System processes past Components and 
outputs a future Component, past Components are const, and no two 
systems may write to the same future Component. This should allow 
very simple threading
with little synchronization.

I'll look at your code if there are interesting ideas.

The previous version of my entity system is used in my ICE game:

https://github.com/kiith-sa/ICE

It's quite messy, though; which is why I'm rewriting it.
The new version doesn't even compile at the moment, I'm working 
on it slowly as I'm studying and working at the same time right 
now.

I'll look over the comment and post if I have any further 
feedback. The only thing I can say right now is that there is 
inconsistent tab-space indentation in some parts of the code 
(e.g. 
https://github.com/elvisxzhou/artemisd/blob/master/source/artemisd/entity.d 
)
