What is Haxe?
Haxe is an open source toolkit based on a modern, high level, strictly typed programming language, a cross-compiler, a complete cross-platform standard library and ways to access each platform’s native capabilities.
About this image
This image ships a minimal Haxe toolkit:
haxecompiler with its standard library
How to use this image
The most straightforward way to use this image is to use a Haxe container as both the build and runtime environment. In your
Dockerfile, writing something along the lines of the following will compile and run your project:
FROM haxe:3.4 RUN mkdir -p /usr/src/app WORKDIR /usr/src/app # install dependencies COPY *.hxml /usr/src/app/ RUN yes | haxelib install all # compile the project COPY . /usr/src/app RUN haxe build.hxml # run the output when the container starts CMD ["neko", "Main.n"]
Then, build and run the Docker image:
$ docker build -t my-haxe-app . $ docker run -it --rm --name my-running-app my-haxe-app
Using the onbuild variants
onbuild variants that include multiple
ONBUILD triggers to perform all of the steps in the above Dockerfile, except there is no
CMD instruction for running the compilation output.
Rewriting the above Dockerfile with
haxe:3.4-onbuild, we will get:
FROM haxe:3.4-onbuild # run the output when the container starts CMD ["neko", "Main.n"]
onbuild variants assume the main compilation hxml file is named
build.hxml. To use another hxml file, set the
BUILD_HXML build argument during build:
$ docker build -t my-haxe-app --build-arg BUILD_HXML=compile.hxml .
