  • bevy

    A refreshingly simple data-driven game engine built in Rust

    there are a bunch of great examples on the Bevy engine github, the unofficial Bevy cheat book is an amazing resource, and there are a bunch of games on itch.io under the Bevy tag that are almost all open source.

    A collection of Bevy assets, plugins, learning resources, and apps made by the community

    Bevy still has functionality gaps in most areas. And we still warn developers about stability and missing features in our learning material. But many people are successfully making games with Bevy at this point. Some companies are already successfully building on Bevy for commercial projects. Our modular "everything is a Rust plugin" approach means that most gaps can be filled with 3rd party plugins, and we already have a large ecosystem of people doing that: https://bevyengine.org/assets/.

  • SonarLint

    Clean code begins in your IDE with SonarLint. Up your coding game and discover issues early. SonarLint is a free plugin that helps you find & fix bugs and security issues from the moment you start writing code. Install from your favorite IDE marketplace today.

    Ultimately Bevy will have XR support. There is a Bevy OpenXR branch here that I'm hoping will ultimately lead to official support.

  • bevy_editor_pls

    In-App editor tools for bevy applications

    It's on of the primary initiatives right now. Games are not developed by only programmers, we're well aware of that. There are a few ongoing existing ecossytem level efforts like bevy_editor_pls. For an official editor, we're just lacking the UI tooling to fully flesh it out right now. Like Godot, Bevy's dogfooding it's own UI solution for the official editor, but it's not quite there yet. Bevy isn't alone in this. There's a smorgasbord of ongoing work in the Rust for UI space, and there's quite a bit of greenfield efforts to develop a data-oriented or ECS style approach to UI layouting and management. Once we have this a bit more hammered down, it's just a matter of time before an official editor becomes available.

  • rusty_engine

    2D game engine for learning Rust

    If you are the kind of person who wants to learn Rust first, and then Bevy later, then I suggest starting with Rusty Engine (full disclosure, I'm it's author). It is a simplification layer around Bevy that removes almost all game engine concepts, so you can practice out your beginner Rust skills making simple game prototypes.

  • InfluxDB

    Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.. InfluxDB is the Time Series Platform where developers build real-time applications for analytics, IoT and cloud-native services. Easy to start, it is available in the cloud or on-premises.
