Provides 2D and 3D vector types for vector operations in Julia.

Build Status Coverage Status


Run one of those commands in the Julia REPL:

  • Through the SISL registry:

    ] registry add https://github.com/sisl/Registry
    add Vec
  • Through Pkg

    import Pkg


Vec.jl provides several vector types, named after their groups. All types are immutable and are subtypes of 'StaticArrays'' FieldVector, so they can be indexed and used as vectors in many contexts.

  • VecE2 provides an (x,y) type of the Euclidean-2 group.
  • VecE3 provides an (x,y,z) type of the Euclidean-3 group.
  • VecSE2 provides an (x,y,theta) type of the special-Euclidean 2 group.
v = VecE2(0, 1)
v = VecSE2(0,1,0.5)
v = VecE3(0, 1, 2)

Additional geometry types include Quat for quaternions, Line, LineSegment, and Projectile.

The switch to StaticArrays brings several breaking changes. If you need a backwards-compatible version, please checkout the v0.1.0 tag with cd(Pkg.dir("Vec")); run(`git checkout v0.1.0`).
