Another week of links is upon us. Enjoy!
That’s that for another week – catch you in a weeks time!
Here we go again with another round of links. Enjoy!
Until next week – keep up the great work folks!
Hi all, it’s been a long time since my last post – I was on vacation, and upon returning from vacation was buried under too much work to get around to the links posts. Now that things have settled down, let’s get back into the weekly links roundups for another year. I should note that given my vacationing, I may have missed your links. If this is the case, please email me and I’ll be sure to include them next week. Enjoy!
- Jens Deters has been very busy since my last post. Here are the things he has blogged about: the release of MQTT.fx 0.0.12, the release of ShichimiFX 1.0.3 and ShichimiFX 1.0.4.
- Hendrik Ebbers has blogged about the Desktop and Embedded Application JSR that has just been officially kicked off. In a separate post he expands on this by talking about UI toolkit independence. Finally, he has also blogged about the recordings of his JavaOne talks being available.
- Tom Schindl has blogged about displaying and editing large (styled) texts in JavaFX.
- José Pereda has a very interesting post on creating and texturing JavaFX 3D shapes.
- Gerrit Grunwald has an interesting post on running JavaFX on an e-ink display.
- Arnaud Nouard has two posts to cover. Firstly, he has continued to develop his Undecorator library to remove the operating system ‘chrome’ and replace it with something cross-platform and visually pleasing. Secondly, he has created a simply magnifier application called Magnifix.
- Johan Vos has posted another JavaFX on Android video.
- Bertrand Goetzmann has posted a screencast that demonstrates how to create a new JavaFX afterburner.gfx project using the Lazybones Project Creation Tool.
- Pedro Duque Vieira has started working on a ribbon control for JavaFX. So far the progress looks very promising, but as always, the devil is in the details!
- Florian Brunner has blogged about using ControlsFX in a Drombler FX application.
- John Martens has created javafxtutorials.com to contain, well, JavaFX tutorials. Already he has a few posts up, with titles such as ‘what is JavaFX?‘, ‘The 2 Ways to Write JavaFX Programs‘, and ‘Hello Math – A Tale of 2 Programs‘.
- The IDR Solutions blog has two posts. The first one is titled ‘5 reasons why JavaFX is better than Swing for developing a Java PDF viewer‘. The second one is titled ‘The use of NetBeans Dialog API for the NetBeans JavaFX PDF Viewer Plugin‘.
- Niels Würzbach has posted about research into the use of JavaFX for in-car infotainment.
- Sebastian Stenzel has started a project called ‘FXThreads‘ to make switching between main and background threads in JavaFX easier.
- The tesis-dynaware github repo has recently published a library for creating and editing graph-like diagrams in JavaFX.
- If the upcoming dialogs API in JavaFX 8u40, or the dialogs API in ControlsFX is not to your liking, Ryan Gilera has created SimpleDialogFX – another API for JavaFX dialogs.
That’s all folks. Catch you all next week!
10 days until Christmas – that’s crazy – where has the time gone?! Seriously! I don’t even know if I’ll get the Christmas tree up in time this year!
Catch you all next week!
A quiet week this week, but a few good links nonetheless. Enjoy
That’s that for another week. Catch you all in a weeks time!
It’s already December (at least here in New Zealand)! This year will soon be over – time is absolutely flying. Here’s the links from the last week – enjoy.
That’s all folks. Catch you next week
A lot of links this week, enjoy!
- Adam Bien has an article on ‘Structuring Complex JavaFX 8 Applications for Productivity‘.
- José Pereda has written an article for this months Java Magazine called ‘Building castles in the sky‘, which is all about JavaFX and its 3D capabilities.
- Speaking of José, he has also posted a YouTube video of a JavaFX-based “icosphere, a 3D custom mesh of an sphere created with a triangle mesh (40k points, 80k faces, 65k colors). A variable density function is mapped to the texture to achieve this moving effect, without using images.”
- David Gilbert has also published an article in Java Magazine, titled “A Bridge from Java 2D to JavaFX”. This article describes the FXGraphics2D project that allows Java 2D code to target the JavaFX Canvas node.
- Matthieu Brouillard has announced that he is working to integrate his CSSFX project into Scenic View.
- Jens Deters has announced the release of ShichimiFX 1.0.1, which includes a few new nice features.
- Andres Almiray has been interviewed as a ‘former Swing-aholic’, talking about his thoughts on JavaFX. Note that when he mentions accessibility support coming up in a future release, that is the 8u40 release.
- Dirk Lemmermann posted two videos this week. Firstly, of his work on an animated menu (which looks pretty neat), and secondly on a JavaFX browser debugger.
- Rahman Usta has posted a video detailing how to use the Asciidoc FX project to write books.
- Yakov Fain has written a JavaFX-based Tic-Tac-Toe game in about 200 lines of code (spread over FXML, CSS, and Java files).
- Martin Andersson has written a JavaFX client for his ‘secure login and authenticated file transfers‘ project.
- Mik has created a JfxFrame API that (somewhat) mimics the Swing JFrame syntax, and allows users to not have to extend the JavaFX Application class.
That’s all folks. Catch you next week!
A few good links this week – enjoy
Catch you all next week!
A few good links this week means I can get the post out quickly and back to my day job! Enjoy
Catch you all next week!
A slightly delayed links roundup this week – I’ve been unwell and so I wasn’t behind my PC yesterday. Now that I’m recovering, here’s the links from the last week:
- Marco Jakob has posted a tutorial for the JavaFX dialogs API that is coming in JavaFX 8u40.
- Speaking of the new dialogs API, Jesus Luna Quiroga has also posted a blog on getting started with them.
- Marco has also posted an interesting read of his opinions on JavaFX vs HTML5.
- Hendrik Ebbers has posted some thoughts on the ‘New Desktop Application Framework’ project and how DataFX may possibly integrate into it.
- Dirk Lemmerman has two posts this week. Firstly, one titled ‘2015: The Year When JavaFX Takes Over‘, and secondly, another of his JavaFX tips, this time on ListView autoscrolling.
- Amrullah Syadzili has posted a video demonstrating TiwulFX, including how to integrate a TableView with a database and export to Excel.
- Bruce Johnson let me know about a project he has been working on. He says that the application, called NvFX, is designed for “processing of NMR (Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Data). The graphical interface is entirely done in JavaFX and makes significant use of ControlsFX.” He has posted a video of the application in action for those interested.
- Jeff Frieson has posted an article about customising cell rendering in Swing and in JavaFX list controls.
- Carl has two posts this week, both to do with cut, copy, and paste support. Firstly, from MenuBar, and also from ToolBar.
That’s all for this week – catch you next week!
