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.
A huge number of very interesting posts this week, so lets just get straight into it!
- Tom Schindl has been extraordinarily busy, working on a very interesting code editor project called Compensator.
- The F(x)yz project has released a sampler application that demonstrates all their 3D goodness.
- Jens Deters has announced FontAwesomeFX 8.1.
- Dirk Lemmerman has a post on JavaFX path clipping.
- Johan Vos has published an article on cloud based monitoring of IoT devices (using JavaFX).
- Chris Joakim has posted a new project on GitHub called fxml2j that sounds pretty neat. Quoting the website: “The ‘fxml2j’ library will BOTH generate an implementation of the Java Controller class, as well as show you ongoing “diffs” between your FXML and Controller class as each of these two code artifacts evolves. The library will discover the fx:id elements, and #-prefixed action methods, and generate the appropriate @FXML annotated Java code.”
- Dirk Fauth has published ‘SWT to JavaFX migration‘.
- Timothy Baldridge has posted a project to GitHub called fn(fx). From the website: “This library provides a functional, declarative wrapper around JavaFX. The goals are to provide a “Virtual DOM” like interface over the OOP mutability JavaFX embraces.”
- René Jahn has posted about the JVx framework and how it is utilising JavaFX.
- J.Zimmermann has created a JavaFX-based VNC client.
- Lukas Eder has posted about how to ‘transform your SQL data into charts using jOOQ and JavaFX‘.
I think you’ll agree that this is a great batch of links. Keep up the great work folks – it’s great to see! 🙂
Who would’ve thought it – more links! Enjoy 🙂
That’s all for this week – catch you again next week.
Some really cool links this week. Enjoy!
That’s all for this week. Catch you all next week!
Another week, another round of links. Enjoy.
- Tom Schindl has announced that e(fx)clipse 1.2.0 has been released. Another feature of this release is that it includes a helper API to call methods that throw exceptions.
- Hendrik Ebbers has been busy, blogging five separate posts this past week. They were titled ‘Concurrency in UI Toolkits (Part 1)‘, ‘Concurrency in UI Toolkits (Part 2)‘, ‘An introduction to Open Dolphin‘, ‘How to set up a DataFX application‘, and ‘DataFX Tutorial 6‘.
- It’s great to see people making use of JavaFX to create Android applications using the JavaFX Ports project by Johan Vos. This week I saw a few mentions on twitter, including William Antônio porting his stacker game, Darryl Ruggles getting PekkersLogicSimulator running, and José Pereda getting 15FX running on Android.
- Pedro Duque Vieira has posted about some of the new features coming up in JavaFX 8u40. This is quite a nice release!
- Jens Deters has posted three posts. Firstly, ‘how to allow users to customize the UI‘, ‘JFXPanel and FX platform thread pitfalls‘, and finally ‘FontAwesomeFX 8.0.13 released‘.
See you next week.
