HI there… I am a hobby game developer. I have been interested in HAXE for a while due to its cross platform deployment and wanted to give it a try. Unfortunately I am having problems finding any learning material, and the stuff I have found seems very out of date.
I searched Reddit and did not find any active communities, at least not besides /r/haxe and the only youtubes I could find were just super general “this thing exists” type videos and I couldn’t find any books on Amazon.
As I said I am a hobbiest. I mainly make small 2D adventure games, like the old point and click ones by Infocom.
TL;DR : Dose anyone have any links to learning materials for Haxe Development? Books or Blogs are great, but happy for video tutorials as well, anything really. Thanks.
Haxe itself is just a programming language. You might want to pick a game engine / framework first, and then look for learning materials for that. For example, for HaxeFlixel, various examples / docs / a tutorial can be found on https://haxeflixel.com/. Some popular library choices can be found at the bottom of this page: Games - Haxe - The Cross-platform Toolkit
Yes, Reddit doesn’t seem to be very popular in the Haxe community - it’s used mostly for sharing news, not asking questions. The Discord server is very active though.
As for the Haxe language itself, we have a nice site with code snippets / how-to’s:
There is a video section on the Haxe site too:
Thank I have been looking at HaxeFixle and HaxePunk… but I think KHA might the the thing for me. I used SFML for my last project and KHA seems like a kinda thing like that.
Also those Haxe Language Links are great… thank you,.
I wrote up some brief tutorial notes that you might find useful:
though I’m updating it as I myself learn.
Wow, that looks pretty cool! Thank you for your effort! Is there any tweet linking to this I can retweet?
No, I didn’t tweet it. I have an account, but don’t really use Twitter. Can you tweet it? Or is that not proper twittiquette?
Ok, haven’t logged in for ages, but tweeted about it. Not very familiar with Twitter though…
@uvtc Cool… thanks man. I’ll look thought that for sure.
What HAXE needs for noobs and hobbyists like me is some kind of ambassador like “IAmTimCorey” for c#.
