When will you be moving to Haxe 4?


(Eric Bishton) #1

Hi Folks,

I realize that many of you use the latest (and hopefully greatest) preview releases. For those folks, we really appreciate the help and the testing that your use brings.

However, for the rest of you who don’t have that luxury, I am wondering what is your current plan for adoption?

The point is this: As an IDE tool developer, I need to know how to prioritize the work required to fully support Haxe 4 against our other issues. I also need to know this specifically in the context of the users of IntelliJ. At the same time, users of VsHaxe and FlashDevelop (and Kode, Atom, Vaxe, et al) may have different needs and time frames. So, to help us tool devs out (and since the survey data has seemed to disappear into the bit-bucket), can you answer these few questions:

What version of Haxe do you currently use?
What is your time frame for moving to Haxe 4?
What is your primary IDE/Editor?
Do you work for a major corporation, and independent company, or a hobbyist?

Thank you for your answers!!

-Eric

I guess you’re mostly interested in what the professionals use but here goes anyway :smile:

What version of Haxe do you currently use?

3.4.7

What is your time frame for moving to Haxe 4?

As soon as it’s available. Why not, I’m a dabbler with no code base to care about yet!

What is your primary IDE/Editor?

Just learning Haxe so prefer to use a simple editor, (Geany on Linux). Have installed VSCode in readiness for using HaxeFlixel and took a quick look at Kode/Kha, although I have to say I don’t really like these ‘busy’ IDEs. Might take a look at intelliJ sometime.

Do you work for a major corporation, and independent company, or a hobbyist?

Hobbyist interested in making small scale games.

Haxe 4 Preview 4. My primary use of Haxe right now is for Armory 3D and it has updated to Haxe 4 recently so that’s what I’m using.

Right now. I’ll be keeping up with the previews. So far it seems to work great.

VSCode. I love it and use it for everything.

Hobbyist for now, but I plan on using it for an independent company.
