Here’s how to have the Haxe compilation server running continuously in Windows.
This speeds up autocompletion in some IDEs, and improves compilation time.
- Open Windows Task Scheduler
- Click Create Basic Task
- Add name “Run Haxe Compilation Server”, or whatever
- Add name “Run Haxe Compilation Server”, or whatever. Click Next
- Select “When I log on”. Click Next
- Select “Start a program”. Click Next
- Type “haxe” in Program/script input
- Type “-v –wait 6000” in Add arguments input. Click Next.
- Select “Open the Properties dialog…” Click Finish
- Select “Hidden”.
- Select “Run whether user is logged in or not”. Click Finish
One downside to this is that (at least in FlashDevelop/HaxeDevelop) your old running debugger has to be manually killed between each debug session.
