Unity Fucking Singletons

Fucking Singletons

A framework of patterns for avoiding antipatterns in Unity

readme image

Inspired heavily (entirely) by Ryan’s talk at Unite 2017, this is a framework that provides some tools that make writing better game code easier.

Background

This framework depends heavily on ScriptableObjects to make things work. As such, you should have an understanding of what those are! The best way to get that understanding is likely from this video.

API

Current version is 0.1.0

These are the “tools” that the framework provides 🎉

SOObject

Abstract class

A SOObject represents some primitive type as a scriptable object. It’s effectively a data wrapper.

SOBool

A primitive wrapper, wrapping a boolean value.

SOFloat

A primitive wrapper, wrapping a float value.

SOInt

A primitive wrapper, wrapping an int value.

SOString

A primitive wrapper, wrapping a string value.

SOReference

Abstract class

A SOReference provides an abstraction layer for your systems - enabling them to work on data represented as SOObjects, or as constant values.

SOBoolReference

Abstraction representing either a SOBool or a boolean constant.

SOFloatReference

Abstraction representing either a SOFloat or a float constant.

SOIntReference

Abstraction representing either a SOInt or an int constant.

SOStringReference

Abstraction representing either a SOString or a string constant.

SOEvent<T0,T1,T2,T3>

A SOEvent represents an event that can be raised, and a collection of listeners that will be notified in the event that it is, in fact, raised.

Raise

Raises the event (optionally with parameters)

RegisterListener

Registers a listener

UnregisterListener

Unregisters a listener

SOEventListener<T0,T1,T2,T3>

A SOEventListener represents the response to a SOEvent - namely the action(s) to take when it is raised

SOSet

A SOSet represents a collection of items.

Items

Returns the child items

GetChildCount

Returns the count of the child items

Add

Adds a child item

Remove

Removes a child item

GameObjectSOSet

A set wrapper for storing GameObjects

GameObjectSOSetElement

A runtime helper for adding GameObjects to a GameObjectSOSet - this enables runtime population of a set
