haxelib install away3d

Getting Started

lime create away3d      // To list all of the available examples
lime create away3d:Basic_View      // To install the Basic_View example
lime create away3d:Basic_View /destinationFolder  // To install the example to a specific location

A typical project.xml file would look as follows. Each example in the away3d-examples repository has it's own project.xml.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <meta title="Basic View Away3D OpenFL" package="away3d.examples.BasicView" version="1.0.0" />

Building Examples

To build an example, 'cd' to the example's folder e.g. Basic_View and use the following.

openfl test <target>     - where target is html5, windows, mac, neko, ios, android, etc

NOTE: When using OpenFL 3.x and the non-html5 targets, please add the -Dlegacy option as Away3D doesn't fully support OpenFL-next for CPP targets as yet.

openfl test mac -Dlegacy


Requires OpenFL 3.x & Lime 2.x (ideally OpenFL 3.5.3 & Lime 2.8.3 or later for both).
