FWIW: I’m new to Haxe, through hacking on someone else’s project.
It doesn’t seem possible to have an interface be agnostic as to a property’s get/set behavior. That is to say, if I want an interface that exposes the ability to read property
x, from an outside perspective I don’t care if the class implements
get. Similarly for
set. As long as I can get or set the property from outside, that ideally would be enough to satisfy the interface, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. If I want to use
set in a class, it has to be in the interface, which means I have to use
set in every class that implements that interface.
I suppose I was hoping it were more similar to Swift in this regard, where the interface just specifies whether you can read or read/write, and the implementing class can expose that as either stored or computed properties.
Anyone have insight into the design choices, here?
