A heap of great links this week. People don’t seem to be slowing down in the lead-in to JavaOne. I’m getting incredibly excited – I can’t wait to see you all again! 🙂

I know I sound like a broken record, but it is now only four weeks until JavaOne. I’m quietly panicking over here in New Zealand about how much more I have to get done, and how little time I have to get it done in! I hope you’re all more organised than I am feeling right now! 🙂

JavaFX links of the week, August 15

Things are getting quiet around here! As I say every year around this time, people must be starting to think about JavaOne and planning their talks, and open source projects and news tends to go a little bit quiet 🙂 It’s only a month to go until JavaOne now!

  • Gerrit Grunwald has written an article on sharing your location with friends using the cloud (as well as JavaFX and Gluon on mobile devices).
  • Peter Rogge has released ‘Lib-Tile’ 0.1.0. As he puts it: “Lib-Tile is a multi Maven project written in JavaFX and NetBeans 8.0.2 and provides the functionalities to use and handle easily Tiles in your JavaFX application. A Tile is per definition a little transparent Image which overlay a background-color or -image with the help of repetitions from the image in a layer.”
  • There have been updates to a number of open source projects, including Medusa, RxJavaFX, the NetBeans IDE afterburner.fx plugin, and SmartCSV.fx.

JavaFX links of the week, July 18

A heap of releases this week, and a few good articles too. It’s now only two months until JavaOne, so I hope everyone is starting to think about their presentations, projects, and social activities. I can’t wait to get over to San Francisco again and see you all – it is always one of the highlights of the year for me, and I hope for you all as well!

  • Gerrit Grunwald has been mentioned a number of times this week. Firstly, he was interviewed about his experiences and thoughts on JavaFX. Secondly, he published another of his Friday Fun Components, this time a simple ‘ChargeControl‘. Finally, he is presenting a ‘custom controls’ talk to the Silicon Valley JavaFX Users Group on July 20. As usual this will be live-streamed, so you can attend from anywhere in the world.
  • Almas Baimagambetov let me know he has released an update to his FXGL project. FXGL is a JavaFX 8 Game Library written in Java and Kotlin.
  • Edvin Syse has posted updated documentation for the view model in TornadoFX. TornadoFX is a lightweight JavaFX Framework for Kotlin.
