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

Haxe – Wikipedia

Each platform is natively supported, without any overhead coming from running inside a virtual machine. You can, and people often do, write entire program in Haxe but what we’re doing is just creating libraries for manipulating lnaguage JSON. But if something is high level and cross-platform, then I have to think that a sacrifice in speed and memory is being made.

Haxe is an open source technology, free to use and modify. You will never get a high level language that will do that as languate as a low level language. Proggramming, Haxe type rules sometimes feel like Python in that you can simply ignore types much of the time, but there are times when Haxe insists that you give a variable or function return value a type.

Me, I’m going with hax. It’s a real programming language suitable for complex projects.

Introduction to the Haxe Language

Be your own person, gosh dang it! Free and open-source software portal. I wasn’t able to lnguage command line arguments and some other things in Sys working in Python, which wasn’t a problem because I’m only using command line arguments for testing purposes.


Type checking follows nominal typing with the exception of anonymous types where structural typing is used instead.

And as computers get faster, it becomes less important. It allows compilation of programs, written using an ECMAScript-oriented syntax, to multiple target languages. It does seem like Haxe might have value in this regard if you liked it more than TypeScript, though.

For example, you are not, in many cases, required to specify the type of a variable if the type can be inferred by the compiler. Not all late-bound languages allow this. lamguage

That may be overkill for your purposes, but generally I agree – Haxe is languagee great language to define JSON-like structures. You can pretty much target almost any platform you could ever want to.

More info on this bench here: This solves our problem perfectly. The ultimate cross-platform language Haxe: Its not done yet, but I think that it could be awesome. Buyer’s Guide to Application and Data Integration.

So the performace of OCaml should not influence the performance of your Haxe written application, but on only the perfomance of the Haxe Compiler itself – which by the way is lightning fast. The messages the components send, at some point, are almost all represented in JSON, so we need some way to define that JSON centrally to ensure that all participants conform to the same schema and to make it testable.

Arduino and Progeamming, etc. 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. Adobe Flash Media Server. I’m not sure if compiles every compiled language, but it compiles it for Java. Haxe abstracts away many target differences, but sometimes it is important to interact with a target directly, which is the subject of Target Details.


Examples of parametric enum types are the Haxe standard library types Option [39] and Either: However, Haxe has been designed with expressiveness in mind, yielding a powerful language through easily readable syntax.

If you find yourself talking to someone who actually knows the correct pronunciation, rely on chutzpah. The Python just comes out Python. Basically, if you don’t type a variable, it’s a monomorph of lannguage type until some later expression causes it to be inferred. See the original article here. The Haxe Programming Language was designed to be simple yet powerful. There’s also a convenience class to run languge standard known data through each object and convert it to JSON so we can verify reference output with automated tests.

The Black Arts If you are truly hardcore and my core is pretty languave that of a Hsxe Twinkie you baxe start messing with macros. In theory, you could modify the code haxe emits, but that would be perverse. You can also learn more about Haxe by reading our Introduction to the Haxe Toolkit.

It also has a very powerful and fairly straightforward and maintainable code generation features, which is a bit advanced but REALLY useful.
