I’m back from my travels last week and have a few links to share – enjoy! 🙂
- Tom Schindl has posted about supporting OpenJFX 11 from JDK11 onwards in e(fx)clipse.
- Pedro DV has posted about fluent designs for ComboBox and ScrollBar.
- Carl Walker has posted about aligning labels with type-safe CSS using TornadoFX.
- GOXR3PLUS STUDIO has a bunch of activity this week, including a new version of XR3Player with “new DJ Features and ability to connect to dropbox through JavaFX”, a video tutorial on how to use Iconli font icons, and an updated release of FX-Borderless-Scene.
A quiet week this week!
Heaps of good links this week – enjoy!
- Johan Vos announced that JavaFX 11 early access builds are now available in Maven Central, and the final release is on track for release in September (with JDK 11). This is really cool as we are getting to the point where JavaFX is decoupled from and able to progress at its own pace, separate from the JDK. There is a short how-to document up on the Gluon website.
- Pedro DV continues to improve JMetro, adding support for TreeView, Tabs / TabPane, and context menu.
- Gerrit Grunwald has two posts this week. Firstly an anchor selector control, and secondly, on rolling gradients.
- Jordan Martinez has announced he is looking for someone to take over maintaining the RichTextFX (and related) projects, as he is moving onto other technologies and won’t have the time going forward. I hope someone steps up, as there is some really cool technology here and it would be a shame to see it abandoned.
- Andres Almiray has two blog posts this week. Firstly about creating aggregate JavaFX bindings, and secondly about using Sass in JavaFX (something that I know Gluon does also with Gluon Mobile).
- Dirk Lemmermann has another JavaFX tip, this time on masking / clipping / alpha channels.
- Tristan Deloche has open sourced Lyrebird, a free, open-source, cross-platform twitter client.
Here are the latest links. Enjoy 🙂
- Andres Almiray has forked JavaFXMDI and created DesktopPaneFX. Both projects are MDI-style components, similar to the JDesktopPane in Swing.
- Gerrit Grunwald has created a really cool GradientPicker control.
- Dirk Lemmermann has published a JavaFX tip on the ‘managed’ property in JavaFX and what it means.
- David Gilbert has released an update to FXGraphics2D, which is a free implementation of the Java Graphics2D API that targets the JavaFX Canvas. It makes it possible to reuse existing Java2D code in a JavaFX application.
- Java Magazine has an article written by Sean Phillips on ‘producer-consumer implementations in JavaFX‘.
- Brian Hudson has blogged about creating a chord diagram in JavaFX.
