Installing OpenFL on a Non-Internet Computer


#1

Hi,
I have a computer that doesn’t connect to the net that I would like to install openfl on.
There is an offline installer for Haxe but then when I go to command and type:
Haxelib Install openfl, it naturally displays:

Host lib.haxe.org was not found
Please ensure that your internet connection is on
If you don’t have an internet connection or if you are behing a proxy
please download manually the file from http://lib.haxe.org/files/3.0/
and run 'haxelib local ’ to install the Library.
You can also setup the proxy with ‘haxelib proxy’.

Is there offline install option for openfl ?

Yes I did tried the link as suggested by the command prompt but all I get is:
This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below.

Thank you so much, now I have the two zip files.
Where do I unzip and put the content of these two files ?

Wow, so simple and cool !
Now…from absolutely ZERO Understanding…I shall try to start making sense of this…should I start with Haxe first ? or OpenFL ? or even that Lime thing that I know nothing about…going to toss a three sided coin ;p

Well,
HAXE - is the language with which you will write code
OpenFL and LIME - Both are libraries to make things with HAXE

I would suggest, start with an OpenFL project and follow along the OpenFL official tutorial to get something running. Along the way, you will pick up HAXE (though the basics of a language will help you understand better).

For the time being just remember that LIME is low level and helps OpenFL. So once you are comfortable in OpenFL and want to go deeper, you can go for it.

Hope that helps.

“Haxe” is not an abbreviation / should not be spelled with all-caps. :wink:

“Lime” is technically an abbrevation, but the official spelling still doesn’t use all-caps.
