Feathers UI for OpenFL and Haxe

What is Feathers UI?

Feathers UI is an open source, cross-platform library of user interface components for creative, frontend projects. It is especially well-suited for rich, multimedia experiences — including games and interactive data visualizations.

On April 2, 2019, Josh Tynjala (the creator of Feathers UI) announced a new version of the framework, built using the Haxe programming language and the cross-platform OpenFL library. The project launched on Kickstarter on June 25, 2019 — eventually surpassing its funding goal with the help of a truly amazing community of developers.

Can I try out the new Haxe/OpenFL version today?

Absolutely! Check out the getting started instructions for more details.

However, please understand that development is still in the early stages. For the time being, you should expect to encounter bugs and many missing components and features.

If you're not ready to be an early adopter, keep an eye on the Feathers UI blog for future announcements regarding the release of more stable milestones.
