There used to be a website (an old one, where Haxe was spelled as "haXe") that got you started.
But that website is no more. I had already started with HaxeNode and it seems fitting to also document HaxeJS. I decided to get some of that back. Based upon the information from the old site and my own needs, I decided to document this.
I hope this will help you. If you think so, why not help with contribution to this tutorial site.
For clever, cool and handsome developers. Duh! :D
- Developers who have tried CoffeeScript and TypeScript.
- Flash-developers looking for an AS3 replacement

I wanted to make contributing to this documentation as easy as possible.
That's why I use Markdown. Developers use it, but is just writing in plane English so everybody can write documentation!
This documentation hosted on Github - developers' favorite place to store code.
Even if you are not a developer and don't want to clone everything, you still can change the files on the website (you need account to login in and change the

Other clever developers who had this idea before me:
