A heap of great links this week. People don’t seem to be slowing down in the lead-in to JavaOne. I’m getting incredibly excited – I can’t wait to see you all again! 🙂
- Rob Terpilowski has posted about mapping directions with JavaFX using the GMapsFX directions API.
- John Sirach has posted an update about the PiDome client software.
- Gerrit Grunwald has created a cool looking CardNavigation control for his Friday Fun Component.
- Jens Deters has been working to add module support to the FontAwesomeFX project – very cool!
- Samir Hadzic (a major contributor to the ControlsFX project) has posted about answering the question ‘is my Stage visible?‘
- Edvin Syse has posted a video of a cool new feature he has developed on top of the JavaFX TableView – support for expanding rows (and replacing them with input fields). The only downside – it looks like it is baked into TornadoFX – it would be really cool to see this in Java in a project like ControlsFX.
- Edvin is also exploring the development of a data grid control – you can see another video of that in action as well.
- Peter Rogge has released Lib-Tile-Demo v0.2.0. In this release he has added the option for the developer to style the background colour with CSS. That mean it’s now possible to use a Linear- and/or RadialGradient colour for the background colour.
- Andrew Oliver has built ScraM, a Minecraft programming tool with a JavaFX drag-and-drop GUI.
