Starling

For Haxe

I’m pleased to announce the alpha release of haxe-starling (aka Haxling), a Haxe port of the “Starling Framework“, the popular AS3 hardware accelerated 2D graphics library. haxe-starling currently supports Flash, AIR for desktop, AIR for mobile and HTML5 as targets. That being said we will look at the feasibility of expanding to other Haxe platforms in the future.

Samples

To the right you’ll find the flash and html5 sample applications which are bundled in the github repo. These demonstrate the capabilities that are currently supported. You’ll notice not all features have yet been ported.

The benchmark test tends to perform best when you run each instance in its own page.

Missing functionality / work in progress:

  • Flash/AIR
    • ATF texture format / artifacts
  • HTML5
    • htmlText styling
