Lets start off with something that’s been in the pipe lines for a long time now,
haxe.org has finally gotten its own blog! The content I’ve luckily been privy to in the past that might make its way onto the blog is just brilliant.
The Haxe Foundation and FlashDevelop teams have launched HaxeDevelop!
Wighawag has created a very interesting project called gcusage, which allows you to get “gc usage [information] for some portion of your code to test for allocations”, utilising macro magic. This is only for the HXCPP target. Its been hinted that gcusage could be used by the Haxe compiler team to detect performance regressions in their tests.
Wighawag used gcusage to create a runtime for spriter that has zero allocations while animating for the HXCPP target.
Nicolas Cannasse announced that he has decided to stream, possibly weekly, talking about Haxe, new compiler features and more. Even though the first stream wasn’t saved, Valentin Lemière posted an overview of what was said.
Sven Bergström has posted the first snowkit patreon update which includes the great news that Martin Jonasson, who recently released Two Fold Inc, paid Sven to create a linc library for the Haxe community, a linc library for iCloud’s Key-Value storage, linc_icloud.
