Haxe is a general-purpose language supporting object-oriented Unusual among programming languages, Haxe contains a type. Haxe is a feature-rich, high-level, Turing-complete programming language. It’s very generic, somewhat Java-like, but it also feels somewhat. While the modern programming language Haxe is well-known in some circles, many developers have never heard of it. Yet since it first appeared in

Functions are first-class values in Haxe. Haxe is an open source toolkit based on a modern high level strictly typed programming language, a state-of-the-art light-speed cross-compiler, a complete cross-platform standard library, and ways to access to each platform’s native capabilities. As such, the language easily adapts the native behaviours of the different platforms you have targeted in your development project.

Adobe Provramming Media Server. This VM includes a garbage collector and support for the high-level features of Haxe, e. But there will always be specific tasks that will require maximized speed or data efficiency. You can build desktop and mobile apps with JavaScript. I got some helpful responses from people who use Haxe on my Haxe performance forum topic.

As used in Haxe, this refers to something different from a conventional abstract type. Thus, the following type signatures have different semantics than in the aforementioned languages. Looks like there’s still room for independence. Type checking follows nominal typing with the exception of anonymous types where structural typing is used instead. What Haxe is not Haxe is not a high level framework.


Eccentrics are still proudly mispronouncing vi to rhyme with bye after more than 40 years, and others snobbishly stick to saying Line-ux instead of Lin-ux because supposedly Linus is pronounced Line-us. Buyer’s Guide to Application and Data Integration. Haxe is an open source toolkit based on a modern, high level, strictly typed programming language, a cross-compiler, a complete cross-platform standard library and ways to access each platform’s native capabilities.

For this reason, and for code readability, I almost always type function arguments.

Haxe — The Coolest Language You’ve Never Heard Of

Join the DZone community and get the full member experience. The type F is a function that takes an Int and a String as arguments, and returns a value of type Float. Support Haxe, save your Tools”. I had to work around a few things, but very few so far.

The compiler will check types implicitly and give compile-time errors, but it also enables the programmer to bypass type-checking and rely on the target platform’s dynamic type-handling.

Opinions expressed by DZone contributors are their own. How Complete Is It? Haxe can also run on two virtual machines runtimesNeko and HashLinkboth made by the Haxe Foundation. The type system is static unless annotations for dynamic typing are present, for use with targets that support them. Most of the features of modern languages are included in Haxe. This strategy of compiling to multiple source code languages is inspired by the write once, run anywhere paradigm.

Get the word out. Interfaces in Haxe are very similar to those in, for example, Java. Archived from the original on October 22, Its not done yet, but I think that it could be awesome. No knowledge of OCaml is needed to develop applications using Haxe. The whole reason that low level languages persist is because they generate code that is so much more efficient in memory and CPU usage.


Haxe can compile to an impressive number of different languages: Open Source Haxe is an open source technology, free to use and modify. Object-based programming languages OCaml software Programming languages created in Software using the GPL license Source-to-source compilers Statically typed programming languages.

You can compare it to Typescript https: It’s proramming successful and easy that we’re looking fold other boilerplate functionality into the Haxe build. So for each language, there is an additional set of idiosyncratic libraries.

Not sure I get the point. There are beans with getters and setters for all the fields plus methods to write the JSON and constructors to go in the reverse direction. Finally, we will venture into the exciting land of haxe macros in Macros to see how some common tasks can be greatly simplified. Haxe consists of a high-level, open source programming language and a compiler.

String ; public function age: Writing such beans isn’t a big deal — we just don’t want to write and maintain everything in five languages for the rest of eternity.
