Access Dart Analysis Server from Java

In my last few blogs (here, here and here) I started implementing a smart dart editor with syntax highlighting, auto complete, … for google dart. While the first posts have been dedicated to getting syntax highlighting working we’ll now start with the higher level features you are used to from full blown IDEs. In this […]

In the first iteration you’ve implemented all the form UIs you need in your application which you made flashy with the help of CSS, animations for perspective switches, lightweight dialogs as introduced in e(fx)clipse 2.0, … .

Developing a source code editor in JavaFX (without e4 and OSGi)

In my last blog post I introduced the DSL we’ll ship with e(fx)clipse 2.1 in August 2015. Our main deployment platform is of course e4 on JavaFX but because we have a clean architecture based on IoC and services our components don’t know about OSGi and hence can be used in any Java(FX) application no […]

Defining source editors with a DSL

As of today it is quite cumbersome to define source editors who are built on top of the Eclipse Text Framework. In the upcoming 2.1 release of e(fx)clipse we’ll ship a first set of components making it dead simple to define editors for e4 on JavaFX applications (adding support for Eclipse 4.x and e4 on […]

Lightweight Dialogs in e4 & JavaFX

I’ve just checked in the initial bits to use lightweight dialogs in your e4 + JavaFX applications. You can see it in action in the short video from below Useage is fairly simple. First you need to have dialog implementation like this: and displaying it is nothing more than: As you can see in the […]

Storing custom UI-State in e4+JavaFX

I guess many e4 developers asked: How do I restore custom UI-State? Most likely answer they get is: Use persistedState of org.eclipse.e4.ui.model.application.MApplicationElement who is a Map<String,String> What a bad bad idea! This makes your nice UI code who uses dependency inject depend on the e4 application model! What a bad bad idea! For all users […]

Compensator – A code editor and a code dev environment written in JavaFX

If you’ve followed the release of e(fx)clipse 1.2.0 and my latest blogs on this, you might have noticed that we have spent quite some time on components like a styled text editor, a filesystem viewer and other basic stuff one needs to build a code editor application. e(fx)clipse Compensator – a simple code editor The […]
