Haxe Code Cookbook

javascript

Overview of Haxe snippets and tutorials tagged with javascript.

  • In most cases, you want a Main class with a static main function as entry point to start your program. However, there are cases where there is no need for this - for example if you are writing a library that other programs will be using. ‥

  • Normally, when compiling Haxe to JavaScript, the resulting code is kept away from the global scope. This means that you can't reach the Haxe generated code from other scripts. To make that possible, there's the @:expose metadata that can be used on a class. This makes the class exposed to the global scope, and therefore possible to use in plain JavaScript.‥

  • This entry came to be after Haxe user anniz shared his experiment which aimed to recreate VGA text rendering in Flash. Soon after, it was proposed and discussed as a potential Code Cookbook entry. You can read more about its history in this repository issue.‥
