Welcome to the JFXtras Project.

The goal of JFXtras is to provide those pieces that developers often need in their day-to-day work, but that are currently missing from JavaFX.

JFXtras and JFXtras Labs

The project is divided into two different pieces. Components in the official JFXtras library are considered stable with APIs that are unlikely to change much in future releases. The JFXtras Labs library contains components that are currently under active development and are considered experimental. The API of the components may change significantly from one release to the next, or they may be abandoned completely.

Once the JFXtras developers feel that a component has reached a mature state, it will be moved from Labs into the main JFXtras library.

The JFXtras library has been divide into smaller parts, mainly to prevent a single artifact to become fairly large (which is a problem for the Internet of Things development). Currently JFXtras consists of the following parts:

  • jfxtras-common - containing basic classes, like layouts, utility classes, etc.
  • jfxtras-fxml - containing FXML related classes, most notably JFXtrasBuilderFactory which is used to easily add builders to the FXMLLoader.
  • jfxtras-controls - containing standard controls like several date and time pickers
  • jfxtras-agenda - containing a the 'Agenda' (Google Calendar) control
  • jfxtras-window - containing a non standard Window implementation
  • jfxtras-menu - containing menu implementations
  • jfxtras-labs - containing incubator classes
