12.10.1 Getting started with Haxe/Python

To get started with Haxe/Python, create a new folder and save this class as Main.hx.

class Main {
  static public function main():Void {
    trace("Hello World");
  }
}

To compile, either run the following from the command line:

haxe -python hello.py -main Main

Another possibility is to create and run (double-click) a file called compile.hxml. In this example the hxml file should be in the same directory as the example class.

-python hello.py
-main Main

The compiler outputs a file called hello.py in the current folder, which can be executed with python hello.py (or python3 hello.py in case Python 2 is the default on the system) from the command line.
