OpenFL is a free and open source software framework and platform for the creation of multi-platform applications and video games.[4][5] OpenFL programs are written in a single language (Haxe) and may be published to Flash movies, or standalone applications for Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, iOS, Android, BlackBerry OS, Firefox OS, HTML5 and Tizen.[3][2]

OpenFL is designed to fully mirror the Flash API.[2][5] SWF files created with Adobe Flash Professional or other authoring tools may be used in OpenFL programs.[5]

Notable mobile video games developed with OpenFL include the BAFTA-award-winning game Papers, Please and the PlayStation Mobile game Rymdkapsel.

NME[edit]

NME is an open-source video game and application framework and the predecessor of OpenFL.[6] NME supports iOS, Android, BlackBerry, Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Flash Player and HTML5, with legacy compatibility for webOS.[7]

The NME API is similar to the Graphics API of Adobe Flash Player. NME is an alternative to Adobe Flash Player, and uses C++ and OpenGL. NME uses the Haxe programming language which compiles source code to C++, SWF bytecode or Javascript.[8]

NME was first released in March 1, 2007 under the MIT License, and the last version was 5.2.13, released in January 15, 2015.
