A lightweight component-entity-system engine
Pronounced as the ancient French city “Lutèce”, Lutes is a micro component entity system engine.
Component Entity System
Component entity system architecture is often used in game development.
It allows great flexibility by using composition over inheritence. It is based on three core elements:
- An entity is a mere ID that represent an object in our world
- A component is a structure holding the object data for an aspect of the world. Several components can be associated to an entity.
- A system contain the logic for an aspect of the world
Lutes adds a fourth element: the manager. The manager is the glue that ties components, entities and systems together.
