Free IDE’s for haXe with syntax highlighting and code completion
Eclihx is an eclipse plug in that allows provides syntax highlighting and code completion features for the haxe development. Since eclipse it in cross platform it works in all platforms including Linux. However as of writing eclihx is still in not yet really stable and has some glitches.

FlashDevelop is another good and free ide for haxe . It is at the time of writing the best available ide for haxe. The downside side of it is that it is available only for the windows operating system.

Most of the popular editor like vim , geany , gedit etc have syntax highlighting for haXe . But it is particularly difficult to remember all the class names by heart and for a more productive programming session , I would recommend either flashdevelop or eclihx.
