JavaFX links of the week, February 27

I missed last weeks links due to the arrival of my second child, and I’ve been on paternity leave since then. Therefore, I might have missed some links, but feel free to email me and I’ll get them included next week.

  • Thomas Nield has released RxKotlinFX 1.1.0 and 2.0.0 releases.
  • Gerrit Grunwald has released an updated TilesFX with improved map tile support.
  • Dan Newton has written about editable tables in JavaFX. Normally I would review these articles for accuracy before linking to them, but time constraints mean I haven’t this time around – hopefully it is accurate 🙂
  • Dan Newton has also posted about ‘Size does matter (in JavaFX)’, an article about configuring JavaFX charts.
  • Markus Falkhausen has finished his class diagrams project for JavaFX.

  • Gerrit Grunwald is doing awesome work on TilesFX, this week improving the sizing strategy to not waste space as the tiles area is resized.
  • Tom Schindl has added support in e(fx)clipse for Java 9 – great work!
  • Dirk Lemmermann has posted about the benefits of writing custom layouts in JavaFX for performance and flexibility reasons. As the JavaFX UI controls tech lead, one of the core things I spend a huge amount of my time on is custom layouts, and I agree that it is an incredibly useful skill for people to have. It opens up a world of possibilities to getting exactly what you want, and often times is a far quicker way of creating the look you want, compared with using multiple nested layout containers!

A day delayed today, as New Zealand celebrated another public holiday yesterday. In any case, better late than never, so enjoy 🙂
