A really busy week of links this week – you’ve all been very busy! 🙂
- Dirk Lemmermann has posted another post about the ‘JavaFX missing features’ survey he run. This time he talks about performance and quality responses that he received.
- Jens Deters has released FontAwesomeFX 8.10 which splits the icon packs out into separate artefacts so that the file size is reduced in most cases.
- Gerrit Grunwald has posted another of his Friday Fun Components, this week a progress bar styled on the ‘material design’ style. Looks very nice 🙂
- Carl has two blog posts about the JavaFX TableView control. Firstly, he has a reviewed the performance implications of the TableView cellValueFactory API, when using the reflection and non-reflection approaches that are available. Secondly, he has posted about saving changes to JavaFX TableViews when the data set is large.
- Jeff Friesen has an article exploring JavaFX’s Application class.
- Gluon announced the availability of Gluon Maps, a library that allows for a Google Maps user interface using JavaFX (without the need for an embedded WebView, etc).
- Adam Carroll blogged about VocabHunter, a tool for learners of foreign languages, which is written using JavaFX.
- Edvin Syse has released TornadoFX 1.4.2, which is a lightweight JavaFX framework for Kotlin.
Erratum: Gluon Maps does not use Google maps, but OpenStreetMap for tile rendering.
