Skial Bainn: Haxe Roundup 150
Philippe Elsass has created an incredible tool to generate typed definitions from the CreateJS Toolkit to Haxe and Typescript. It “could easily be extended to other languages”, so maybe NME should adopt it? Apparently when the Dart Toolkit is open sourced, a variant of CreateJS, it will be possible to make an NME Toolkit!.
Niko finished his HTML5 game created with Haxe and Box2D, not sure what its called though.
Andy Li’s improvements to the Haxe lexer in Pygments, the lexer that Github, Bitbucket and others use, has finally been merged.
Andy has also written about
haxe.unit, “the unit testing package bundled in Haxe”.
Cauê Waneck, creator of the Java and C# targets, has released a very cool “tiny cli” tool called mcli, which “is a simple, opinionated and type-safe way to create command line interfaces”. Checkout the example to see how elegant it is.
Peter has published a video “sneak peek of Genome2D” for Haxe. Very impressive.
Rocks has released HxQuery, a “jQuery like CSS Selectors engine written in Haxe” which allows you filter through any data structure. The engine currently supports xml, NME display list and plain Haxe objects.
Sergey Miryanov has generously made his NME extensions available through github, MIT licensed.
Andreas Rønning has shared his thoughts, generating a decent discussion, about how / if he should release his tools “Tilesheeter” and “Bonewagon”, which could be combined to make an IDE for NME.
