Using FlashDevelop with Openfl

Just to make things clear, OpenFL is the sequel of NME. NME is working great with HaXe 2 and latest versions of FD but if you want to make FD, HaXe and OpenFL working hand in hand this is the trick :

  1. Install HaXe and Neko http://haxe.org/download
  2. Install the latest beta version of FlashDevelop http://www.flashdevelop.org/community/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=3529 It's 4.4.3 right now.
  3. You need to tell FD where the hell is HaXe. Go in Tools>Program Settings. Under HaxeContext, you have Installed SDKs. Click on the 3 dots
  4. Click Add and on the Path field, add the path to your HaXe install folder (might be something like C:\HaxeToolkit\haxe)
  5. Now you can build HaXe projects. To install OpenFL, I'm using haxelib. So open the Command Prompt. You can even do it from FD!
  6. Make sure you have a lib folder in your HaXe folder and type haxelib install openfl. Then haxelib run openfl setup. It might needs other libraries: haxelib install actuate, haxe install swf.
  7. Now you can go to Project>New Project... Under the HaXe section, you pick OpenFL project
  8. Press F5 to test and BOOM, it WORKS! (I sincerely wish it)
