JavaFX links of the week, July 31

A relatively quiet week this week:

  • I released ControlsFX 8.40.13, a major update to ControlsFX with a bunch of improvements and bug fixes. Also, I put out a few interesting stats, most notably that the last release of ControlsFX, 8.40.12, was downloaded over 153,000 times since it was released. That’s pretty amazing!
  • The JavaFX Documentation Project continued to receive more submissions and grow in volume. If you have some insightful JavaFX knowledge or a blog post you think should be included, please create a pull request!
  • Carl Walker has posted about scrolling game backgrounds in Kotlin and JavaFX.
  • Peter Rogge has continued development on his lib-database-objectdb and lib-action projects this week.

Ok – lets dust the cobwebs off this blog huh? Sorry about the silence folks, it’s been quite hectic around here with some travelling and conference distractions, as well as a huge amount of other stuff going on. Anyway, hopefully the worst is behind and I can get back to what is important! đŸ™‚ Apologies if I missed your link – let me know and I’ll be sure to include it next week.

  • Dirk Lemmermann has posted about ‘going dark‘ with a darcula-inspired theme in JavaFX. This is one of those amazing things people don’t always understand about how JavaFX UI controls work – with only a very minor amount of CSS, the entire UI can change style considerably.
  • Florian Brunner has released Drombler FX 0.10. This version is mainly a bug fix release and especially fixes some issues on Macs.
  • Almas Baimagambetov continues to put out releases of FXGL – his JavaFX game library.
  • Peter Rogge continues to make releases of his lib-preferences library, ‘for easy storing simple data to a Preferences.properties file in a JavaFx & Maven desktop application.’
  • Mohammad Hossein Rimaz has a post about ‘Nonsense Mathematics to Awesome Visualization‘ where he creates cool-looking JavaFX visualisations.

I know I say this every few weeks – but <insert month here> already?! Time flies when you’re busy coding!

  • Peter-Josef Meisch has released mapjfx 1.13.1. mapjfx provides a JavaFX8 region containing a map, allowing to zoom, pan, and use markers. It uses OpenLayers as the map technology.
  • Gerrit Grunwald continues to improve his TilesFX dashboard widgets library.
  • Thomas Nield has released RxJavaFX 2.1.1, which is a minor release with one new feature.
  • Jens Deters has released MQTT.fx 1.5.0, which includes new features and bug fixes. MQTT.fx is now ‘donation ware’ too – so if you make use of this app, be sure to buy Jens a coffee (or more!) đŸ™‚
  • Dirk Lemmermann has posted about invalid JavaFX scroll event deltas.
