The "Aspect" game project written in F#
Clone or download


This repository contains the "Aspect" game project for the YouTube show the_dev_aspect written in F#.

Episode Branches

The code for each part of the F# series is stored in branches of this repo. For each part I include branches for the initial and final states of the code. Here is the current list of branches for each part of the show:

Cloning the Code

You have two options for cloning the code for an episode:

1. Clone the repo and branch directly

git clone -b part-N-initial

2. Clone the repo and then switch to a branch

git clone ps://
cd aspect-fsharp
git checkout part-N-initial

If you've already cloned the repository when watching a prior episode, you should just be able to use these commands to get the code for the new episode:

git pull origin
git checkout part-N-initial

Don't forget to replace the N in part-N-initial with the part number of the episode!

I recommend approach #2 because it will allow you to reuse the repository for downloading the code of future episodes.

Recommended Code Editor

In the show I use the Visual Studio Code editor with the Ionide-fsharp extension to do interactive development.

Helpful Keyboard Shortcuts

  • Run current line of code: Alt + /
  • Run current selection of code: Alt + Enter
  • Show VS Code's command palette: Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + P or F1

VS Code's command palette contains a ton of commands that are helpful while editing F# code. Try typing FSI or F# in the command palette to see relevant commands.
