We’ve just released version 2.6.0 of the Haxe extension for Visual Studio Code. Most notably, the extension now has debugging support for Haxe 4’s macro interpreter “Eval” built-in! For more details, check out the debugging section on the wiki.
We now also support markdown syntax highlighting in doc comments:

many thanks guys. This is awesome !
Awesome work you&co have been doing. it’s becoming quite tempting to jump to VS Code especially due to the Haxe 4 support.
@Gama11 I read the debugging page and was at first like: “this just cannot work out of the box”. I have been playing around with debugging macros now for some time and it is just so very convenient.
I have been using macros for years now and debugging them has always been such an enormous pain in the be-hind.
What an amazing upgade
Just a few points of feedback (please let me know where I should leave these)
- Using this.variable allows you to inspect the “variable” by hovering it. On the other hand only using variable (without this. in front of it) does not…
- When hovering a variable, the popup is a bit too small when there is a horizontal scrollbar. As a result the horizontal scrollbar covers the last field of the variable you are hovering and does not really allow you to expand that field for further inspection.
@Gama11 1 - maybe inside a lambda ?
Erm… perhaps, but that actually just crashes the debugger for me.
