1 - SetupEdit
The first things we need to do is install all of the components we need to work with HaxeFlixel. These are:
- Flash Debug Player
There is a more verbose explanation on installing many of these things here. If anything goes wrong, check there for more information.
Go to http://haxe.org/download and download the installer for your platform (Windows, Mac, or Linux). Run it to install Haxe.
Next, open up a command prompt. On Windows, you can go to
Start > Run, type "cmd" and hit Enter.
In the command prompt, enter the following commands (one at a time):
haxelib install flixel haxelib install flixel-tools haxelib run lime setup lime setup windows lime setup android
This next command will prompt you to create an command alias and select your default editor. Type and enter 'y' to accept an alias and '1' to choose FlashDevelop as your editor. Selecting '3' for 'None' will not produce a
.hxprojfile when creating a new project from a template.
haxelib run flixel-tools setup
Next, download and install the latest version of FlashDevelop.
Finally, head over here and download and install the Flash Debug Player (scroll down and choose "Download the Flash Player projector content debugger").
Assuming everything went smoothly, you should be all set - now we can actually get to the fun part and start coding!
