Building from sources

  1. Clone the repository, initialize and fetch the submodules.

    git clone
    cd haxe
    git submodule init
    git submodule update
  2. You now need to hardcode the path to the new std lib. In file at around line 810 change the first path to match yours:

    com.class_path <- ["/Users/Cristi/Documents/haxecompiler/haxe/std/";"";"/"]
  3. Build Haxe with:

    make haxe
  4. Or build Haxe and the tools with:

  5. On Mac you can run the script that will compile Haxe and will build the demos as well:

  6. If something is not working run first:

    make clean
  7. Bringing HF/haxe changes in this fork (when needed, usually the fork is up to date)

    git fetch upstream git merge upstream/development

Getting started with iOS

The starting point of your app should look like this, everything else is ignored:

public static function main() {
	return new UIApplicationMain ( AppDelegate );

Where the AppDelegate.hx conforms with the UIApplicationDelegate. This is the main method of your app, you should put the code before returning.

class AppDelegate extends UIResponder implements UIApplicationDelegate {
	public function application (application:UIApplication, didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:NSDictionary) :Bool {
		// See the demos from hxcocoa lib please
		return true;
You can’t perform that action at this time.
