piecemeal 0.4.2

Piecemeal is a small Dart library of low-level utility types aimed at 2D games. In particular, I harvested it from my roguelike Hauberk.

Using it #

Add it to your package's pubspec:

dependencies:
  piecemeal: any

Import it:

import 'package:piecemeal/piecemeal.dart';

Running tests #

Piecemeal comes with a unit test suite. From the root directory of piecemeal, run:

dart --checked test/run_all.dart

0.4.1 #

  • Add Vec.nearestDirection.
  • Add Vec.intercardinalNeighbors.

0.4.0 #

  • Rng.take() no longer preserves order, but is faster. To preserve order, use Rng.takeOrdered().
  • Add Rng.round().
  • Add Vec.neighbors and Vec.cardinalNeighbors.
