In this multipart article I will show you how to create duell library with different backends. The example library will show a platform native popup with “hello world” message, in html5 a browser popup, UIAlertView in IOS and PopupWindow in Android.
The Duell Tool is a command line tool for setting up, building and running applications on any platform. It can also be used for other general tasks within app development. It is made in a modular way via plugins, and each plugin is separate from the tool itself. The tool merges the needed plugin on execution.
Finally I can talk about one of the exciting projects we have been working on at Gameduell, the duell tool which was announced today at the WWX 2015 Haxe conference in Paris by my colleagues Sven Otto and Rui Campos. In this article I will try to cover every aspect of this awesome tool.
To Help you getting started with haxe I had this idea about creating a simple (Hello world) cross-platform command line tool which is really simple and it took me not more than 30 min.
Since Haxe first came in 2006 there was a lot of changes involving Language features, platform support and so on . In this article we will try to cover all aspect and changes of haxe to give you fresh look about the technology and I follow up article I will be writing about getting started with haxe.
