Svelto ECS is now production ready

Six months have been passed since my last article about Inversion of Control and Entity Component System and meanwhile I had enough time to test and refine my theories, which have been now proven to work in a production environment quite well. During these months of putting in practice my ideas, I had the chance to consolidate my […]

C# Murmur 3 hash anyone?

If you need a fast and reliable (read very good to avoid collisions) hashing algorithm (not cryptographic), look no further, Murmur 3 is here to the rescue. Take it from here, it’s compatible with Unity3D. Directly translated from the c++ version. More info on Wikipedia and on this definitive answer on stack overflow

The truth behind Inversion of Control – Part V – Entity Component System design to achieve true Inversion of Flow Control

At this point, I can imagine someone wondering if I still recommend to use an IoC container. IoC containers are handy and are quite powerful with Unity 3D, but they are dangerous. If used without Inversion of Control in mind, they can lead to messy code. Let me explain why: When an IoC container is used […]

The truth behind Inversion of Control – Part IV – Dependency Inversion Principle

The Dependency Inversion Principle is part of the SOLID principles. If you want a formal definition of DIP, please read the articles written by Martin[1] and Schuchert[2]. We explained that, in order to invert the control of the flow, our specialized code must never call directly methods of more abstracted classes. The methods of the classes of […]

The truth behind Inversion of Control – Part III – Entity Component System Design

In the previous article I explained what the Inversion of Control principle is, then I introduced the concept of Inversion of Flow control. In this article I will illustrate how to apply it properly, even without using an IoC container. In order to do so, I will talk about Entity Component System design. While apparently it has nothing to […]

The truth behind Inversion of Control – Part II – Inversion of Control

Note: this article assumes you already read my previous articles on IoC containers and the Part I Inversion of Control is another concept that turns out to be very simple once it has been fully processed or rather saying “absorbed”. Absorbed as going over being understood and becoming part of one’s own forma mentis. However, make no […]

The truth behind Inversion of Control – Part I – Dependency Injection

Note: this article series assumes you have already read my previous articles on IoC containers. There is an evil truth behind the concept of Inversion of Control container. An unspoken code tragedy taking place everyday while passing unnoticed. Firm in my intentions to stop this shame, I decided to stand up and start writing this series of articles […]

Svelto Inversion of Control Container

If it’s the first time you visit my blog, please don’t forget to read my main articles on the subject before to continue this post: It’s finally time to share the latest version of my Inversion of Control container, which I named Svelto IoC, which I will keep updated from now on. This new […]
