Haxe for Websites and Web Apps

Haxe gives you a powerful language and useful libraries for writing both server-side and client-side code.

On the client, you can target HTML5 in the browser using Haxe's JavaScript target. Haxe's strict type system means you catch errors at compile-time, and can maintain large code bases with confidence. You can interact with many existing JS libraries using externs.

On the server, you can target PHP (for cheap hosting), or Node.js for access to the massive repository of libraries and tools. Because of Haxe's variety of target languages, Python and Java backends are also at your feet!

Best of all, your client-side code and your server-side code can use the same language, sharing common code and communicating effortlessly.

Haxe is what JS should be: a lightweight, easy to learn, statically typed language with a real and useful compiler.

Peter Halacsy, Co-Founder & CTO at Prezi

Using Haxe to build our web-app meant we were able to build code that ran fast, was maintainable and made it painless to jump between client and server without skipping a beat.
