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

If we were still running things on a Commodore 64, then no high level language would languqge come close to beating a low level one.

Haxe is a high-level cross-platform multi-paradigm programming language and compiler that can produce applications and source code, for many different computing platformsfrom one code-base.

This is called compile-time binding or early-binding. This enables extremely efficient cross-platform development, ultimately saving time and resources. Both are binary functions that return a binary function of type F. It’s a macro library for working with JSON in a type safe and performant way. lagnuage

I might switch-now that I’ve heard all these other people say it, the American pronunciation sounds sort of like a duck. Yes, I see your point about Javascript. Queries are expressed in JSON format, and in a typical use-case, might have multiple languages at either end of the query. This strategy of compiling to multiple source code languages is inspired by the write once, run anywhere paradigm. On the other hand, you do not declare types in Python and similar languages because the runtime figures out what type a variable is on the fly.

Professional haXe and Neko. The Haxe programming language itself is high level and strictly typed. Thus, the following type signatures have different semantics than in the aforementioned languages. Retrieved from ” https: It’s kind of weirdly generic that way.

The C and Java targets work in similar ways I believe – ie.

Typical Haxe programs run identically on all platforms, but developers can specify platform-specific code and use conditional compilation to prevent it from compiling on other platforms. It’s very generic, somewhat Java-like, but it also feels somewhat Pythonish at times.

Language Introduction – Haxe – The Cross-platform Toolkit

The higher level the language, the easier it is to build complex code, but you give up something in speed and memory efficiency. Opinions expressed by DZone contributors are their own. Object-based programming languages OCaml software Programming languages created in Software using the GPL license Source-to-source compilers Statically typed programming languages.

Finally, type inference is supported, allowing for variable declarations without type annotations. We then learn about Haxe’s package manager Haxelib in Haxelib. Rather than either relegating this material to the comments or attempting to correct and adjust my own text, I’m going to inline comments below in italics.

This greatly reduces the risk of mixing up values of the same underlying type, but with different meanings e. I got some helpful responses from people who use Haxe on my Haxe performance forum topic. You trade speed and memory for ease of programming. Introduction About this Document. Yeah, I just reread your post I can see what you meant originally.

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. Cross-compiling your code offers longevity to your code base that is not possible for other methods of cross-platform development. Haxe is a cross-platform toolkit for developing applications, games, multimedia and server side code natively.

Doing that would be a one-way street because there’s no way to suck it back into Haxe. But this can trip you up occasionally. As the unquestioned authority, your pronunciation will be established locally as correct.

Introduction to Haxe

L ; Right v: No knowledge of OCaml is hsxe to develop applications using Haxe. Haxe is a feature-rich, high-level, Turing-complete programming language. Hope it clarifies it a little. To support the whole Haxe ecosystem by funding core technologies To provide a single point of contact for companies that wish to evaluate Haxe as a potential solution To offer Paid Support Plans haxee that somebody will always be available to answer the phone when you need help To help the Haxe Open Source Community by organizing events and user groups Read more about our Paid Support Planshelp support Haxe development by donating to the Haxe Foundation, or check out some of the companies using Haxe.


Enumerated types are an important feature of the language; they can have type parameters and be recursive. In many functional programming languages, structural typing plays a major role. Official website different in Wikidata and Wikipedia.

How Hard Is It? The Java and Python targets work pretty much as you’d guess, but I’ll have to give CPP a try and get back to this issue. The Haxe Foundation offers several support tiers to help with your organization’s technical challenges.

This is quite a bit more sophisticated than what I’ve cobbled together, but it speaks to what I meant about Haxe being a serious programming language, not just a tool for getting around some limited problem. To cover the inevitable complexities there are some compiling features such as conditional compilation that let you continue to maintain one code base.

Feel free to contact us for any inquiry regarding Haxe usage. Translating from a language without pointers to a language with pointers is relatively easy, but going from a language with pointers to one without would be a very good trick. Many popular IDEs and source code editors have support available for Haxe development. Arduino and ESP32, etc.

This includes support for variance in polymorphic functionsalthough not in type constructors. 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. A language expert may correct me on this, but despite the fact that you don’t always have to declare the type, the underlying model of Haxe seems to be strictly compile-time bound in that by the time the code hits the compiler, every type must be either explicitly stated or deterministically inferable.

It’s got all the basic stuff with plenty of modern whistles and bells like closures and generics.
