If you followed my blog in the last weeks you know that I’ve been working on a StyledText-Control which allows one to build a source-code editor with syntax highlighting, … .
With basic syntax highlighting you can already achieve a good results because you can highlight things like keywords, String-Literals, … . Still if you are used to e.g. the JDT sourcecode editor you know it e.g. highlights fields – this is called semantic highlighting and because it involves some time to run the compiler to find out semantic informations this is done in the background.
So I started and ported more parts of the Eclipse-Text and JDT-Infrastructure
Highlighting is nice but a more important feature is auto-complete and so I ported more and more of the JDT-UI infrastructure and the result in shown in the video below which shows a prototype of an IDE I’m working on for my EclipseCon talk.

This is really awesome! Nice work Tom. I hope JavaFx gains traction and companies start using it in lieu of SWT for rendering.
We (BestSolution.at) are working hard on this 😉

I’m very interested in this. I see the repo at.bestsolution.efxclipse.styledtext but is there available the source for your small IDE. I want to see how styledtext is used, test examples.
The small IDE is on my bitbucket account at https://bitbucket.org/tschindl/bitbucketmgr
I have downloaded the sources, but was not able to run the small IDE. Could you please share the steps to achive this?
I’ll try to update the project to the latest efxclipse builds
Hi, ive tried to build the fx-ide from github with maven but got some errors. Can you please add an small guide to build it.
I’m not really working any more on the fx-ide. The most recent work I did was in https://bitbucket.org/tschindl/bitbucketmgr
