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 week, more links – enjoy 🙂

  • Tomas Mikula is working on two interesting projects that you should keep an eye on (on top of his excellent CodeAreaFX): ReactFX and UndoFX. The ReactFX “project is an exploration of reactive programming techniques for JavaFX” – and I highly recommend you look at the code examples to understand how it might be useful in your projects. UndoFX is “a general-purpose undo manager for JavaFX (or Java applications in general).” Again, something that could be very useful in your applications! 🙂
  • Jens Deters has posted code to make it easy to animate a SplitPane divider.
  • Daniele Renda has a post on “Real World JavaFX with GraniteDS : the ACI Ticketing and Booking System”.
  • Dirk Lemmermann has blogged about another control coming in the soon-to-be-released ControlsFX 8.0.5: MasterDetailPane.
  • Thierry Wasyl has posted a handy tip on how to more cleanly ensure your code is running on the JavaFX Application Thread.
  • Steven Schwenke has blogged about an extendable search pane he has created in JavaFX, which may be useful for other developers.
  • Thomas Bolz has published his project ‘renamerFX‘ which is a utility to “batch rename your pictures and movies after taking them from the camera from cryptic to meaningful file names.”
  • Jan Kovar has started work on FXUtils, whose stated goal is to “develop set of components for easier development of JavaFX 8 applications using FXML.”

See you all next week for another round.
