Here's a small code example showing how you can quickly develop a Realtime Chat using a haxe/Flash Client and a haxe/Neko commandline Server that communicates using Haxe Remoting. This package contains the following files :
ClientApi.hx: the API that the Server can call on the Client
ServerApi.hx: the API that the Client can call on the Server
Client.hx: the haxe/Flash Client Implementation, uses XMLSocket
Server.hx: the haxe/Neko Server Implementation, uses ThreadRemotingServer
app.hxml: the HXML file to compile the project
server.bat: neko binary and batch file to start the server
client.html: the precompiled flash client.
Please open the HTML after starting the server and follow the instructions. The source code is very small (4 KB) and should be a good start for people wanting to develop realtime applications.
Download the sources
Note: Flash 8 target is not the default target anymore, so edit the file
app.hxml to target flash 8 instead of flash 9 with the
-swf-version 8 compilation option.
A rewritten version for Flash 9 can be downloaded here: remoting_chat_example_swf9.zip
If you don't load the client from domain localhost you have to change host in both: Server.hx and Client.hx. Then the flash socket policy files will be served correctly.
