The "archetype" library is intended to help jumpstart new haxe projects by creating a basic directory structure and configuration bits.

It is loosely based on the maven2 idea of archetypes, but is much weaker.

Check out the Haxe Archetype site for slightly more detail.

For now, you can download it directly from


% sudo haxelib install archetype
% haxelib run archetype create -artifactId=myProject -packageName=us.versus.them -version=1.0
% cd myProject
% haxe compile.hxml
% ls myProject.swf

QuickStart OpenGL

% haxelib run archetype create -type=opengl -artifactId=myProject -packageName=us.versus.them
