Does Haxe offer something to NodeJS?

(Michael Solomon) #1

I’m considering to give a talk about Haxe in a local(Israel) NodeJS community.
Does Haxe bring something fresh/exciting to this platform?
Do you have ideas about things in Haxe lang/eco-system that will interest NodeJS developers?

As far as I know, the benefits are the same as for other platforms :

  • the langugage itself : typing, macros …etc ( compared to JS or Typescript https://blog.onthewings.net/2015/08/05/typescript-vs-haxe/ )
  • the ability to use crossplatform haxe libraries
  • in a web context : the ability to work fullstack with haxe without being bound to the JS world.
    ( i.e you can code a native mobile app in android or IOS with a node backend , with only haxe code )
