I use Haxe for my job and at Area 9 we created a Haxe library called Flow, almost all our product use this library.
Flow is a statically typed functional language for building software with dynamic user interfaces. It has taken elements from Haxe, D, ML, Haskell, Lisp, and Pico (Prolog).
That’s really impressive, do you know why Area 9 decided to create their own interpreter and compiler? I assume none of Flow has been open sourced?
Yes, Flow is not open source. The main reason is that all products can only be supported by Area9.
I use IntelliJ IDEA, because it works well on Mac, Windows and Linux. Also it has a good Haxe plugin. Lastly, it supports XML schemes.
Intel Core i5, 8 Gb RAM, GForce GTX 750Ti 1Gb.
Being able to write mobile application, because Haxe works well on all platforms and devices.
Bad support for threads, for example, running hidden calculation that do not stop an application.
CPP, Flash, PHP and Neko. I use more than one because different tasks require different solutions. Currently CPP is only used on mobile, Neko is used for building tools, Flash for the web and PHP on the server.
Mobile, browser, server.
We have several devices and test in each one manually. We’ve also use MUnit for some performance tests.
Jive, because it is our library. :)
SSL for IOS and Android!
Have you seen the new SSL/TLS support coming to Haxe
It’s a great improvement over
hxssl and will be included in the std library from
3.3 for CPP and Neko, at least.
In my main work, where we create products with millions subscribers.
In games and sport.
Notch for creating Minecraft and how he change the game industry, Darren Corb who writes awesome music for game like Bastion and Transistor and Dan Abnett, who has written lots of books in Warhammer 40K universe.
My work and contributions to Jive.
What are you thoughts on the other UI libraries in Haxe, with StablexUI and HaxeUI properly being the other two well known libraries? How is Jive different?
I worked with HaxeUI and I like it, but Jive is better for me. The two main reasons for it are we can compile all XML before building product, so it is faster, and the main idea in next version to do it very simple code, so each user can work with it.
Next idea will be to do some UI platform which will help to build applications like wix.com for sites. We have some awesome ideas in this direction.
It will be about Jive for mobile platforms. I’ll show our mobile projects which we created in the last year, and I will speak about Jive’s features and our ideas for the future.
Seriously to listen to all the speeches and talks from good developers will be awesome.
