Newbie trying to use the HTML5 Target

  • Hi,
    I'm getting this message when trying to run the HTML5 target

    Called from ? line 1

    Uncaught exception - [file_open,export/html5/bin/manifest]

    Does anyone know what causing this.

    I can successfully build Flash and Neko targets.

    I've just followed the instructions on

    I'm on a Mac using Visual Studio Code.

    It basically the HelloWorld example.

    Every year or so I give Haxe a go and then get stuck on actually getting it running properly and go back to AIR.

  • No idea if this is related, but once I got a crazy error I couldn't identify, because I had "invisible" characters in my text files (I don't remember how it's called, but basically it's there and you can't see it in the text editor) due to the fact that I copy pasted the code like a big lamer from some site I believe

    Since it's a helloworld project, try copy pasting the relevant lines of code one by one, shouldn't be long, into clean new text files and save over the old ones

  • I've tried that, it didn't seem to help.

    The Flash and Neko targets work fine.

    My current theory was that its due to me running an incompatible version of lime.

  • I started working through the tutorial here with a new project.
    And the html5 target is working. So not sure what caused it, but its working.
