Building a Haxe Project

What This Guide Covers #

This guide covers build environment and configuration topics specific to Haxe projects. Please make sure to read our Tutorial and general build configuration guides first.

Community-Supported Warning #

Travis CI support for Haxe is contributed by the community and may be removed or altered at any time. If you run into any problems, please report them in the Travis CI issue tracker and cc @andyli, @waneck, and @Simn.

Choosing Haxe versions to test against #

Haxe workers on Travis CI download and install the binary of Haxe. To select one or more versions, use the haxe: key in your .travis.yml file, for example:

language: haxe
  - "3.2.1"
  - stable      # the latest stable release defined in
  - development # the latest build of the development branch in

Default Haxe Version #

If you leave the haxe: key out of your .travis.yml, Travis CI will use stable, which is the latest stable release defined in the download list.

Default Neko Version #

By default, Neko 2.3.0 will also be downloaded and installed. Use the neko: key in your .travis.yml file to specify a different Neko version, for example:

language: haxe
neko: "2.0.0"

However, unlike haxe:, you can provide only one value (not an array) to neko:.

Test Configuration #

If your project makes use of the standard hxml files for building, you can specify the list of hxml files using the hxml: key, for example:

language: haxe
  - build.hxml

In the install phase, the worker will run yes | haxelib install $hxml for each of the provided values. Similarly, in the script (test) phase, the worker will run haxe $hxml for each of the provided values.

You can replace the default install and script behavior by using the install: and script: keys, respectively, as described in the general build configuration guide.

Build Matrix #

For Haxe projects, env: and haxe: can be given as arrays to construct a build matrix.

Environment Variable #

The versions of Haxe and Neko a job is using are available as:
