Haxe Forum > Haxe IDE's and refactoring support
David Jun 27 at 04:11
I'm a new haxe user.
Before starting my project i was wondering which setup is recommended.
I am used to writing Java code in eclipse, and I'm a frequent user of
all the rich refactoring tools available for that language.
Which IDE/plugins should I look into to get the maximal refactoring support?
Are the following tools available?
- code completion
- renaming variables/classes
- renaming packages
- moving classes (auto adjusting references)
- auto fixing inputs
- 'CTR clicking' a variable/class to jump to declaration
- auto layout (fixing indentation)
I am mostly interested in 'auto fixing inputs' and 'moving classes',
since I know it would be very tough to go without them :-)

FlashDevelop is a good option, but for more details - haxe ide's

You could use elcipse but with a haxe plugin:
It's a plugin for eclipse to be able to do the same things it does with java, but with haxe.

Nicolás, do you use that I was under the impression no one was using it and anyone using Ellipse was using intelij or FDT?

No, I don't, I tried to, but I have an older version of eclipse and am too lazy to install the new one.

I tried eclihx but it only has a small fraction of the options available for Java.
It seems like FDP is indeed my best option, but it is still quite a big setback.
I will just make the best of it however.

I think Intelj is supposed to be more advanced that FDT but I maybe incorrect.
