Docker Beta on OSX with NetBeans 8.2 workaround

The next release of NetBeans (8.2) has a cool new build-in support for Docker. Get latest NetBeans development build here. But since I switched to native Docker integration on my Mac the connection broke as now Docker communicates via socket instead of docker-machine URL: unix:///var/tmp/docker.sock NetBeans would like to get a valid http or https URL, thusContinue reading

FontAwesomeFX 8.11 is here!

Just uploaded FontAwesomeFX 8.11 to Bintray. Now included: FontAweseme 4.6.1 with 23 additional icons and a new kid on the block: 525icons Font coming with (…surprise!) 525 icons on board. Due to naming conventions and restrictions 525icons related stuff is called “icons525” in FontAwesomeFX, e.g. de.jensd.fx.glyphs.icons525.Icons525. FontAwesomeFX 8.11 compile ‘de.jensd:fontawesomefx-fontawesome:4.6.1-2’ compile ‘de.jensd:fontawesomefx-materialdesignfont:1.4.57-2’ compile ‘de.jensd:fontawesomefx-materialicons:2.1-2’ compile ‘de.jensd:fontawesomefx-octicons:3.3.0-2’Continue reading

FontAwesomeFX 8.10: The artefacts act

Recently I created a demo an wanted to use just one FontAwesome icon and I notices that I need to add the whole ~600KB package for that. Clearly the package size is driven by the all the contained True Type Font files: de.jensd:fontawesomefx-fontawesomefx:8.9 571 KB So I thought about split the full package into separatedContinue reading

You can download latest binaries/installers at mqttfx.org. [UPDATE] I have updated theContinue reading

Ordering via SortedList (and Properties Extractor)

Quite a while ago (almost 1,5 years 😱) I wrote a post about the JavaFX way to get ListViews and TableViews instantly updated on model data change: using Properties Extractor pattern. TableColumns have a build-in support for sorting the data per column: just double-click the column header (. But how to order ListViews or getContinue reading
