View Source Initial Setup

To demonstrate ECSx in a real-time application, we're going to make a game where each player will control a ship, which can sail around the map, and will attack enemies if they come too close.

Note: This guide will get you up-and-running with a working game, but it is intentionally generic. Feel free to experiment with altering details from this implementation to customize your own game.

  • First, ensure you have installed Elixir and Phoenix 1.7+.
  • Create the application by running mix ship
  • Run mix ecto.create to initialize the database
  • Add {:ecsx, "~> 0.5"} to your mix.exs deps
  • Run mix deps.get
  • Run mix ecsx.setup
