A quiet week this week. I’ll be travelling for the next two weeks, so don’t expect any posts from me during this time.
April already!?! Where does time go. Anyway, I hope everyone survived April Fools Day for another year.
- I missed a post by Gerrit Grunwald last week, so this week there are two links you should check out – both of them are ‘Friday Fun’ components. Firstly, he has a dot matrix display, and secondly, he has used this dot matrix display to create a stock ticker component.
- Jeff Martin has two posts this week – ‘Custom JavaFX controls and Scene Builder‘, and ‘Better GUIs for Java games‘.
- Roger Lacroix is looking for beta testers of his Swing-based MQTT Message Viewer app.
- Carl Walker has posted about Kotlin elements in TornadoFX type-safe builders.
A number of links this week, including:
- Ron Smits has blogged that ‘keepassFX release coming closer‘.
- Mirko Sertic has been working on his FXDesktopSearch app. As he puts it: “FXDesktopSearch is a Java and JavaFX based Desktop Search Application. It crawls a configured set of directories and allows you to do fulltext search with different languages support on the content.” Reminds me of the good old days of Google Desktop! 🙂
- Tom Schindl has a post about working with the JavaFX UI thread as part of the e(fx)clipse runtime library.
- Edvin Syse has posted a youtube video about writing an application using TornadoFX.
- Dirk Lemmermann has posted about a JavaFX animation tool that he is working on.
A relatively quiet week this week, but a few nice links nonetheless:
- Edvin Syse released FXLauncher 1.0.15, and auto updating launcher for JavaFX Applications.
- GlazedLists 1.10.0 has been released. As Holger Brands put it to me: “It now features an JavaFX extension, which contains a bridge between EventList and ObservableList. EventObservableList is an implementation of ObservableList that is backed by a source EventList. That way you can use your existing EventList pipelines and connect it to the JavaFX world.” Very nice! 🙂
- Stephan Janssen has posted about the ‘brand new “My Devoxx”? mobile app‘, built using JavaFX (using Gluon) and running on iOS and Android, which is being used for all Devoxx conferences, including Devoxx US coming up this week.
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.
