Sapphire JavaFX (SFX)
A JavaFX Application Framework for Scala User.
It provides a solid base for Rapid Application Development with JavaFX and Scala and is a good place for start development.
Also there is an example of using it with a CDI Framework (Deltaspike).
If you like to try an easy way to setup a desktop app with scala, give it a try.
I started JavaFX GUI develpment with the project sapphire-core, because for every application almost the same pattern were needed.
As my projects need better datalist support and more stuff, i created another project named sapphire-extension and called it experimental.
With the time i wanted to have all code, demos and showcase to be at one place. This was the start of sapphire-javafx.
All data-handling was refactored out in another project called sapphire-data, because this date and expression handling is also useful in non JavaFX projects.
At this time i decided to add a clear namespace prefix: SFX (for Sapphire JavaFX).
Documentation under https://sfxcode.github.io/sapphire-javafx
A showcase can be found in the showcase folder inside this project.
The showcase show some of the common pattern used by this project.
Migrate from sapphire-core
Migration from sapphire-core (and sapphire-extension) by replace:
This should make all problems in packages work again.
Build and tested against Scala 2.12/2.13 and JDK 11/12
Apache 2 License.
Simple JavaFX application with controller composition, controller exchange, ...
JavaFX Login demo enhanced by sapphire-core
spphire-core with ScalaFX and CDI (Deltaspike).
usage of multiple window controller
Showcase Demo as visual reference for sapphire-core key concepts.
Java JDK 11/12
Sapphire runs agains the latest JDK 11/12 version.
Java UI Application Framework as replacement for Swing.
Sapphire depends on OpenJFX 12
Optional Dependency Injection (Issues Demo)
Sapphire use Apache Deltaspike as CDI Abstraction Layer (1.9.x).
The default implementation depends on Apache OpenWebBeans (2.0.x).
Expressions are resolved by EL 3 Tomcat Expression Language.
ScalaFX (optional dependency)
A DSL for JavaFX written in Scala.
ScalaFX plays very nice on top of sapphire-core applications.
sapphire-java makes rapid UI Development easy. Multiple pre-build pattern help to fulfill most data centric parts. Demo applications and showcase available as blueprints.
