Testing made easier in Internet Explorer | modern.IE
Less time testing IE. More time building what matters.
I’ve been working on an AngularJS project for a couple months. It’s been a great experience and I’m digging the framework. The one thing that’s always a pain in the ass when building any web application, is testing IE 🙂
In the past I’ve used VirtualBox with Windows 7 installed. I would then need to install IE Tester or something of that nature for testing all the different versions of IE.
Well checkout this site Microsoft set up. Chad Wright, a developer I’m working with was kind enough to give me a headsup about this cool little gem. You can basically choose a version of windows and version of IE you want, and download. After download you run a couple commands in Terminal and you’re good to go.
How to convert an AS3 ANE to Haxe • Andy Moore
I found this post really valuable if you are needing to use someones existing SWF library in a haxe project. Step 3 and 4 is the part I was looking for so here you go.
Open up the command-line prompt. You should already have Haxe installed if you are reading this, so this magical command should work for you:
haxe -swf nothing.swf --no-output -swf-lib library.swf --gen-hx-classes
This command beautifully creates empty classes (like header reference files) for all the stuff in the library you want to use.
The above command will have generated a directory full of .HX source files. You can ignore most of the base system stuff (it’ll generate classes for basic things like array.hx and Sprite.hx) and instead pick out the bits you need – for me, that was the /com/company/extensionName/ directory. Copy this directory to your project’s source folder.
