HaxeDevelop is sadly a Windows only IDE, and there is a good reason for this.  HaxeDevelop is ultimately a fork of the popular FlashDevelop IDE, which has long been the best IDE for Haxe development.  This fork obviously focuses heavily on Haxe related functionality.  Like FlashDevelop, HaxeDevelop is free and open source.

 

Some noteworthy features:

Project Managment

HaxeDevelop has built-in support for many workflows.
Of course all Haxe target platforms are integrated. You can also start using frameworks like OpenFL, Lime, Flambe, Kha, HaxeFlixel, Adobe Flash and Adobe AIR with the build-in project templates. You can create, customize and share your own project templates.

Click in the tree to jump in the code or open imported classes. Note that anywhere in your code you can also press F4 to jump to the declaration of the element at cursor position. To jump back, press Shift+F4 (also works after using a code generator).
