Hi, has anyone ever thought about a D emitter for Haxe (http://haxe.org)?

I can imagine that this would be nice booster for D to get known to a bigger community and used in real-life projects. I don't have any experience for Haxe nor how to do emitter for it, but maybe someone already started with such a thing.

Not familiar with Haxe but try searching this newsgroup and D.announce for "Dax".

Scrap that. Jus got to http://www.dsource.org/projects/dax for details.

Dax is for converting D to Haxe (D to Haxe -> Dax). And it's in it's *very* early stages, it outputs some *.hx files, but they don't contain anything other than some blank class/function definitions. There's a lot of work still to do on that.

I am working on a Haxe -> D program, too, called Haxed (pronounced however you want to pronounce it ;) ) Unfortunately, Haxed is in its very early stages, too. I have Haxe's preprocessor implemented, and a GOLD/Goldie grammar written, but that's about it. But on the bright side, converting Haxe to D should be a *lot* easier than converting D to Haxe (Although don't expect Haxe's newer macro feature to be one of the earlier features implemented).

The main site URL for it is here: http://www.dsource.org/projects/haxed

But there's not much there right now, not even the source repo. I'm probably going to host the code on BitBucket (I won't use BitBucket for anything else, though). In fact, I'll try to get what I have up there today.

Hi, I don't think that converting D to Haxe makes a lot of sense. But anyway YMMV.

Cool, I expected that someone else already thought about such a thing.

Ok. I will take a look at the emitter stuff of Haxe to get a feeling for it. So, what are the hard parts to do?

Great. I'll take a look and hopefully can contribute some stuff to it.

The idea is that, when finished, we could write web apps in D and *still* be able to run them even on [shared] servers that don't support natively-compiled CGI. (Which I unfortunately have to deal with now and then, which absolutely blows.) I've been using Haxe to deal with crappy PHP-only servers, which is FAR better than pure PHP, but I'd still much rather be able to use D instead (even if I still have to deal with the crappy PHP runtime).

Finding the time for it ;) I expect Haxe's macro system may be difficult, but I'm not really planning to get to that until the rest is done. Other than that, I'll be able to say what the hard parts are when I get to them ;)

Keep in mind, I'm not actually using the official Haxe program to to this - that's written in OCaml, and I don't understand one word of OCaml, or ML for that matter. This is written from-scratch in D.

The repo's up on BitBucket now:

Sorry for the confusion. Should have double checked.

I'm not really interested but good luck with that. Apparently you already have
an audience for your work, so I hope it turns out good for those interested.
