JavaFX Links of September

September 30, 2022

The JavaFX links of the week are back on, and here we collect the complete month for you in an excellent overview.

JavaFX 19 is released

News from "The Web"

  • Pavlo Iatsiuk announced the first release of DynamoIt — a JavaFX GUI client application for AWS DynamoDB - on Reddit.
  • Robert Ladstätter announced the 1000th download of LogoRRR, another JavaFX GUI application!
  • Dirk Lemmermann (of all people...!) got frustrated in this Tweet that he once again had to prove “No, JavaFX is not dead”.
    • Let's all help him in proving a lot of amazing stuff is happening with JavaFX by sharing your project! All contributions are welcome via @jfxcentral on Twitter or a contribution to the jfx-central website on GitHub.
    • Dirk also announced in a tweet that CalendarFX will get a whole new suite of controls for displaying "resource" / "resource allocations".
  • Pedro Duque Vieira released a new version of JMetro, a JavaFX theme composed by a set of controls, stylesheets and skins, inspired by the Fluent Design System and adapted to fit the JavaFX SDK. There are also changes that have been made according to Pedro's opinions on some of Fluent Design’s particularities.
  • An interesting discussion in the GitHub
    maven-jpackage-template project
    - a project by Will Iverson to provide a template project for native desktop applications. Seems there is often a request for a Spring Boot UI template. Let's keep an eye on this "BootFX idea" that could be a using the JavaFX embedded web browser.
  • Friday 30th of September, Gail Anderson is speaking on IntelliJ IDEA Conference about "JavaFX for Mobile Development". A preview is available on YouTube, hopefully we can share the recording here next time.
  • Serendipity announced on Twitter SmartFinder 1.5.3, the first app published on Apple Store with Java 19 and JavaFX 19!
  • WebFX - a JavaFX to JavaScript transpiler - announced a new demo on their website, based on the excellent DemoFX library by Chris Newman. The demo starts with an introductory animation, asking to click in order to play the actual demo, because in the browser sandbox, playing sound is not permitted before interacting with the user. The resulted demo is just one single java source file. Warning, looking at the demo for too long time can cause brain damage or hypnosis 😉
  • The demos of the visual modeler, written in JavaFX and integrating OpenCV, by Alessio Vinerbi are really amazing. Look at the video in this tweet where he modifies two videos on the fly with different visual effects.
