A quiet week this week, which is fine for me as I get over a lingering flu. Enjoy! 🙂
Hi all. Sorry for the radio silence – I’ve been travelling for the last two weeks and it is hard to find the time to put into blogging. Here’s a recap of the links I found over the past few weeks – and apologies in advance to those of you whose posts I have missed. Please email me and I will be sure to include it next week.
- Gluon released Gluon Mobile 5.0.0, the framework for building JavaFX-based applications that can be deployed across iOS and Android devices.
- Gluon also announced first-class commercial support for JavaFX.
- Relatedly, Johan Vos posted an article on the Oracle Developers site about deep learning on (mobile) clients, where he discusses using mobile devices, along with Gluon technology, to enable artificial intelligence without excessive network overheads (by running the intelligence on the device).
- Sebastian Suchanowski has posted about building a custom vertical tab bar using JFXTabPane.
- Gerrit Grunwald has been playing around with recreating the iOS look in JavaFX – and it looks nice 🙂
- Markus Falkhausen has posted class diagrams for JavaFX 10.
A quiet week this week:
- Carl Walker has written about replacing views in a TornadoFX application.
- Jordan Martinez let me know that RichTextFX 0.9.0 was released recently. A few new notable features include the ability to change multiple portions of the document in one update call and display multiple custom carets and selections. See the projects changelog for more details.
A quiet week this week.
A heap of links – enjoy! 🙂
- Slightly related, JPro have also announced their JavaFX-in-the-browser release. Unlike CheerpJ, I believe JPro works by having the application run on the server, and sends across SVG details to be rendered on the client. This places more burden on the server-side, and also results in some important restrictions (no FX event thread blocking for dialogs, etc, no statics in your app (because they will be shared among all users and clobbered or read in by different users), no additional stages can be created, etc). JPro host an array of demos running on their server if you’re interested.
- Johan Vos has blogged about creating a shell for prototyping scientific Java applications.
- Dirk Lemmermann has worked with a student team to create PreferencesFX. PreferencesFX “enables the developer to create preference dialogs with ease and creates well-designed and user-friendly preference dialogs by default.”
- Christoph Nahr has two posts this week. Firstly, a post about JavaFX being decoupled from Java SE 11. Secondly, a post on 3DViewer – viewing 3D objects in JavaFX.
- Mike Hearn has posted about building the React TicTacToe tutorial app in Kotlin/JavaFX.
- Jeff Martin has updated SnapKit Builder recently.
- GOXR3PLUS STUDIO have emailed me to say that they have “created a Chromium Browser in JavaFX and added it to XR3Player“. I was also informed about FX-BorderlessScene, an “undecorated JavaFX Scene with implemented move, resize, minimise, maximise, close and Windows Aero Snap controls.”
- Speaking of undecorated stages, Oshan Mendis has also created a library for doing this.
Hi all! Here are the latest links – enjoy 🙂
- Johan Vos has written an article in jaxenter titled “JavaFX as a separate module: A look back and a leap forward“.
- J. Pablo Fernandez has blogged about restoring window sizes in JavaFX.
- Pedro Duque Vieira has blogged about a new parallax control for JavaFX.
