Detailed Documentation

Base datapack class.

The class must be specialized by providing a template argument. The argument defines what data class will be stored in the datapack objects.


const DATA_TYPE& getData() const

Returns reference to data stored in the object.

The function returns a read-only reference to the data stored by the object. This is the main accessor function of the DataPack object.


Read-only reference to the data stored by the object

PyObject* toPythonString()

Returns a python string representation of this object content.


Python string

virtual DataPackInterface* clone() const

Virtual clone method to support polymorphic copy.

static std::string getType()

Returns type of the datapack class.

The function returns type of the datapack class as string. The return value is not human readable. It’s an implementation-defined name of the DATA_TYPE used by the datapack.

static DataPackIdentifier createID(
    const std::string& name,
    const std::string& engineName

Creates a DataPackIdentifier object with type matching the DATA_TYPE used by the DataPack class.



Name of the datapack


Name of the engine to which the datapack belongs


A DataPackIdentifier object, with DataPackIdentifier::Name and DataPackIdentifier::EngineName provided as arguments, and with DataPackIdentifier::Type deduced from DATA_TYPE template argument of the DataPack class.
