Haxe is a powerful open-source, general-purpose, high-level, multiplatform programming language and compiler that can produce applications and source code for many different platforms using a single unified programming language. Code written in Haxe can be source compiled to Javascript, PHP, C++, C#, Java, Flash, and NekoVM.

Haxe is a general-purpose language with object-oriented programming, exceptions, and type inference with class parameters. Generic classes, reflectivity, iterators, and functional programming are built-in functionality of the language and libraries

Features include:

  • Standardized language
  • ECMA style programming for client-side, server-side & desktop
  • Fast compiling
  • Classic Object-Oriented class + interface model (similar to Java)
  • Strict typing but with Dynamic support
  • Tight type checking
  • Packages and modules
  • Generics (type parameters) with one or several constraints, but not variance
  • Advanced Type Inference for all variables including methods arguments and return types (except member variables)
  • Anonymous Structures with structural subtyping
  • Strictly typed function types, functions closures and partial applications
  • Polymorphic Methods (per-method type parameters), with constraints
  • Optional and constant default value function arguments
  • Explicit Inline methods and constant inlined variables
  • Local function declarations with this capturing
  • Automatic closure creation
  • Powerful Enums (with constructor parameters and pattern matching) - enums are different from classes and are declared with a finite number of constructors
  • No statements : only expressions
  • Exceptions (try/catch)
  • Metadata
  • Partial function call with callback
  • Getter/Setter and more with Properties
  • Method injection with "using" mixin
  • Conditional Compilation
  • Iterators
  • Syntax shortcuts using Macros. The Haxe macro system allows compile-time code-generation without modifying the Haxe syntax
  • Standard library that works on all platforms
  • Platform-specific API
