Sonatype Nexus (Releases) Sonatype Nexus (Snapshots)

A tiny entity framework written in Java. It's inspired by frameworks like Ash (hence the name) and Artemis. Ashley tries to be a high-performance entity framework without the use of black-magic and thus making the API easy and transparent to use.

Ashley is awesome, if you don't believe it, check out some games made with it!

Ashley lives under the Libgdx family but it does not force you to use that specific framework if you do not wish to do so.
