What is an HXPROJ file?

An HXPROJ file is a configuration file for a Haxe development project. It contains XML-formatted text that defines a project's version, output, included classes, and build options. The HXPROJ format has been replaced by the .HXML format.

Haxe is an open-source, general-purpose programming language used to create video games, web applications, mobile applications, and cross-platform desktop applications. Notably, Haxe is used in the HaxeFlixel game engine, which is an open-source game engine used to develop 2D games.

Previously, Haxe developers used HXPROJ files to store configuration information about their Haxe projects. The Haxe compiler then used these HXPROJ files to build developers' projects. However, Haxe projects now more commonly use the HXML format for storing configuration information.

How to open an HXPROJ file

You can open and edit an HXPROJ file in any text or source code editor. Source code editors, such as Microsoft Visual Studio Code, provide tools that make editing HXPROJ files easier.

To use an HXPROJ file to compile a Haxe project, you must install Haxe and run your HXPROJ file, by opening a terminal window, navigating to the directory that contains your file, and entering Haxe YourFileNameHere.hxproj. Haxe will then produce the output your HXPROJ file describes.
