Between the 23rd and 26th of May, last weekend, WWX 2014 took place with some impressive talks and announcements. The easiest thing to notice is the brand new haxe.org website.
The website was redesigned by Jason O'Niel using Ufront a MVC web framework using GitHub as the content database which is then pulled in, parsed and rendered to display the site. Every page has a
contribute link which will take you to its corresponding GitHub page so you can create/edit and send a pull request.
A dedicated roundup of WWX 2014 is in the works. There are a couple of presentation slides still missing, so until they have been published here is a group photo of all the attendees.
Eduardo Costa has released three libraries while WWX 2014 was going on, participating remotely. The first is AndroidHx which helps ease and speed up development of Android apps while using Haxe. The second is NodeHx which provides strongly typed NodeJs extern definitions with documentation and the third is NodeWs which “wraps the Http API of NodeJs and offers a straightforward way to implement web services”.
Matt Tuttle has created HxLUA which as you might have guessed by the name, allows you to “run any Lua code inside Haxe” currently only on Neko and C++ targets. You also have the option of passing a context object which will set variables before any script is run.
Boyan Ololoevich has released HIDE
0.3.9 which is now available from haxelib.
