    Hi,

    I would like to know what do you have in mind in the future for UI and ECS ?
    I think ECS is a really good candidate for a Databind framework.
    Anything like that in the works ?

    Thanks

    ATM there is no active work being done on that front, other than some experiments. But UI code is a very good candidate for data-oriented optimizations, and we will surely look into it once the most core systems will be solid and stable enough.

    Since Unity ECS is aiming best possible performance. I think direct access to update UI and make UI jobifiable in system are the best way to go in my opinion. It will need Reactive System to make it only update UI when the data that relates to the UI transforms.
