A lot of links this week, enjoy!
- Adam Bien has an article on ‘Structuring Complex JavaFX 8 Applications for Productivity‘.
- José Pereda has written an article for this months Java Magazine called ‘Building castles in the sky‘, which is all about JavaFX and its 3D capabilities.
- Speaking of José, he has also posted a YouTube video of a JavaFX-based “icosphere, a 3D custom mesh of an sphere created with a triangle mesh (40k points, 80k faces, 65k colors). A variable density function is mapped to the texture to achieve this moving effect, without using images.”
- David Gilbert has also published an article in Java Magazine, titled “A Bridge from Java 2D to JavaFX”. This article describes the FXGraphics2D project that allows Java 2D code to target the JavaFX Canvas node.
- Matthieu Brouillard has announced that he is working to integrate his CSSFX project into Scenic View.
- Jens Deters has announced the release of ShichimiFX 1.0.1, which includes a few new nice features.
- Andres Almiray has been interviewed as a ‘former Swing-aholic’, talking about his thoughts on JavaFX. Note that when he mentions accessibility support coming up in a future release, that is the 8u40 release.
- Dirk Lemmermann posted two videos this week. Firstly, of his work on an animated menu (which looks pretty neat), and secondly on a JavaFX browser debugger.
- Rahman Usta has posted a video detailing how to use the Asciidoc FX project to write books.
- Yakov Fain has written a JavaFX-based Tic-Tac-Toe game in about 200 lines of code (spread over FXML, CSS, and Java files).
- Martin Andersson has written a JavaFX client for his ‘secure login and authenticated file transfers‘ project.
- Mik has created a JfxFrame API that (somewhat) mimics the Swing JFrame syntax, and allows users to not have to extend the JavaFX Application class.
That’s all folks. Catch you next week!
