The new Inscape 0.47 has a very cool feature, it can save any drawing as a JavaFX file. Inkscape is a open source vector graphics editor, with capabilities similar to Illustrator or CorelDraw and is based on the standard SVG file format. It will save out your drawing as a JavaFX source file that contains a subclass of CustomNode which has all the graphics from your drawing in it. Its a shame it only supports JavaFX source files and not FXZ files as they can be loaded at runtime without the need to compile them. Maybe the next release will support FXZ as well as it should not be hard the formats are very similar. Even without FXZ support this is an amazing addition and I am sure will prove really useful to a lot of people working with JavaFX.

So go download it now and have a play 🙂
