I really like Haxe as a higher level typed language. My Nephew who is in his 20s has wanted to learn programming and he was able to go from "Hello World" to a decent 2D game he was thinking about for a few years in a few months working off and on.
Now my preferred method would have been him learning Racket with Realm of Racket and then Haxe but he was still able to get things done. He used HaxeDevelop and pretty much used Haxe like a flash replacement with OpenFL.
Here are the popular Indie Games made with Haxe:
A ton of Kids games
EA's Madden Mobile
I've seen Haxe around for years now, even toyed with it for a bit eons ago. I see it's now branded as for cross-platform development. I'm reading use-cases on their site. So, I have a question. Is it possible to utilise it for writing an app that works both on mobile and desktop, not just cross-mobile or cross-desktop-os?
Why not put all efforts on good integration into VS Code for example? I ask also because FlashDevelop was a poor IDE, seems like it's based off it.
