haxe: wirte actionscript on both client and server? Looks nice

Have you seen this?

haxe.

Quote
haXe is a high-level object-oriented programming language mainly focused on helping programers develop Websites and Web applications. haXe has been designed to be easily portable across several platforms. The haXe compiler supports the following platforms :
JavaScript : you can generate a single .js file from a set of haXe classes. You can access browser DHTML API as well as crossbrowser APIs such as Xml, Date or XmlHttpRequest... haXe is one of the best available languages to develop middle and large scale AJAX Web Applications.
Flash : haXe can compile a SWF file for Flash Players 6 to 9. The language has great features and is at the same time both strict and dynamic. Using haXe increases productivity compared to ActionScript. All the Flash APIs are available unchanged in haXe so you will quickly get used to the language, and porting your existing code to haXe will be easy.
Neko : haXe can compile bytecode that runs on the Neko Virtual Machine. An haXe program can then be run into the Apache web server (using mod_neko). This allows you to develop the server-side of your website using haXe. haXe has access to all Neko libraries such as filesystem, network, databases... and much more. Since it can easily be extended with additional libraries, haXe can be used to develop full-fledged desktop applications.

Check out types... very nice!

Thoughts?

Nobody seems to be using it out there, but it looks promising.

You can see how easy it is to make a space invaders game in haxe here:

In less than 100 lines of code. It's french, but it's pretty obvious what everything does:

It is quite a way down my list, but haxe is on my list of thing to play with. It looked nice from what I read on their website. However, the more I move from thinking about coding to actually coding I am toying with the idea of just sticking with Python for *everything*. I feel I could be more productive being *very* skillful with Python then somewhat skillful at dozens of languages/frameworks/etc.

Has anyone been looking into this lately? I am kind of thinking to look at it more seriously mainly due to flash and javascript stuff.

mouser, sure that is geenrally good diea if one wants to learn some new language. I just do not think that I will be able to have the dedicated focus for this contest. I need to learn a new language, come up with a game idea and actually make it. It sounds fun,but it is just a matter of timing issue for me. Although I would definetely be interested in how Haxe fits into this kinds of situations.
