What is Haxe?

Haxe is an open source toolkit based on a modern, high level, strictly typed programming language, a cross-compiler, a complete cross-platform standard library and ways to access each platform's native capabilities.

How to use this image

Start a Haxe instance running your app

The most straightforward way to use this image is to use a haxe comtainer as both the build and runtime environment. In your Dockerfile, writing something along the lines of the following will compile and run your project:

FROM cromo/haxe:3.2.0-neko
COPY . /source
WORKDIR /source
RUN haxe -main Main -neko Main.n
CMD ["neko", "Main.n"]

Then build and run the Docker image:

docker build -t my-haxe-app .
docker run -it --rm --name my-running-app my-haxe-app

Compile your app inside the Docker container

There may be occasions where it is not appropriate to run your app inside a container. To compile, but not run your app inside the Docker instance, you can write something like:

docker run --rm -v "$(pwd)":/source -w /source cromo/haxe:3.2.0-neko haxe -main Main -neko Main.n

This will add the current directory as a volume, set the working directory to the volume, and run the command haxe -main Main -neko Main.n. This tells haxe to compile the code in Main.hx and output a Neko bytecode file to Main.n. Alternatively, if you have a build.hxml, you can instead run haxe with the hxml file inside your container:

docker run --rm -v "$(pwd)":/source -w /source cromo/haxe:3.2.0-neko haxe build.hxml
