FX Experience Has Gone Read-Only

I've been maintaining FX Experience for a really long time now, and I love hearing from people who enjoy my weekly links roundup. One thing I've noticed recently is that maintaining two sites (FX Experience and JonathanGiles.net) takes more time than ideal, and splits the audience up. Therefore, FX Experience will become read-only for new blog posts, but weekly posts will continue to be published on JonathanGiles.net. If you follow @FXExperience on Twitter, I suggest you also follow @JonathanGiles. This is not the end - just a consolidation of my online presence to make my life a little easier!

tl;dr: Follow me on Twitter and check for the latest news on JonathanGiles.net.

Another weeks worth of links, posted whilst I’m on vacation, so pardon the brevity! 🙂 Enjoy!

  • Gerrit Grunwald has posted a video showing an application he has developed running on desktop, Android, iOS and Raspberry Pi. It is a great video as it shows the state of JavaFX on these platforms, and what remains to be done. In general it is very pleasing seeing where things currently stand – it seems beyond a few issues with fonts and layout, the primary focus needs to be on performance.
  • Sven Ruppert has blogged about the internals of the TestFX library for testing JavaFX user interfaces.
  • Andy Till continues to work on his Cavity Search API for searching for labels in JavaFX user interfaces. It looks like it will be a really useful API for users wanting to provide this specific feature in their software.
  • Dino Tsoumakis has released a fork of Adam Bien’s followme.fx, with his version focusing on support for iOS.
  • Laurent Nicolas has created an application for his kids called DrawKidFX which makes use of JavaFX, Leap Motion, and his Radial Menu control.

That’s all folks. See you again next week 🙂
