Lib-Tile

Intention

Lib-Tile is a multi Maven project written in JavaFX and NetBeans IDE and provides the functionalities to use and handle easily Tiles in your JavaFX application.

A Tile is per definition a little transparent Image which overlay a background-color or -image with the help of repetitions from the image in a layer.

The current version is 0.2.0 from 08.13.2017 (MM.dd.yyyy).

Hint
Normally only one Tile can shown simultaneously. For demonstration purpose I have merge different Tiles in one picture.

Hint
This image is from the webpage https://wall.alphacoders.com. The image haven't neither a created by or shared by flag (see http://alphacoders.com/site/faq ). If anyone is the autor and won't that I use this image here in my open souce project plz send me an email (see Contact) and I will remove it. Thanks for your great work 😃.

Content

Demo

The application Lib-Tile-Demo shows a demonstration how to use and handle the features from the libraries in the project Lib-Tile.

Hint
The library Lib-Tile-Customized-Examples provides different examples about reduced, mixed and own TileSets. This examples are shown in the tab Customized Tiles.

For more informations and examples plz see the ReadMe from Lib-Tile-Demo.

Libraries

Like I said before Lib-Tile is a multi Maven project which contains different sub-libraries. Which sub-libraries are the best for you depends from your requirements in your project.

To use Lib-Tile in your project you need minimal the library Lib-Tile-Core plus a concrete implementation from an TileLoader which loads your own Tiles images. How that work will be explained in the sub-project Lib-Tile-Demo or have a look into the class TransparentTexturesTileLoader from the library Lib-Tile-TransparentTextures-Images.

Natural you can use additional libraries which contains predefined tilesets. Currently supported is Transparent Textures with the libraries Lib-Tile-TransparentTextures and Lib-Tile-TransparentTextures-Images.

In the library Lib-Tile-Customized-Examples different examples shows how to used a reduced, mixed and / or own TileSet.

Lib-Tile-Core

The library Lib-Tile-Core provides the API to load a Tile (which is per definition a little transparent Image) as a Background or an Image with a concrete implementation from a TileLoader.

The main point for access the functionalities from this API is the class TileProvider. For example with the method TileProvider#loadAsBackground(TileLoader, Tile) the developer can load a Tile as an Background.

Class TileProvider:

/**
 * The singleton {@code TileProvider} allowed the developer access to all relevant 
 * methods in context from the {@code API} from the library {@code Lib-Tile-Core}.
 * <p>
 * For example with the methods {@code getDefaultTile(XY)} a concrete instance from 
 * the {@code Inteface} {@link com.github.naoghuman.lib.tile.core.Tile} can be created.
 * <br>
 * With the method {@code getDefaultValidator()} the developer have access to a 
 * default implementation from the {@code Inteface} 
 * {@link com.github.naoghuman.lib.tile.core.TileValidator}.
 *

 * @since  0.2.0
 * @see    com.github.naoghuman.lib.tile.core.Tile
 * @see    com.github.naoghuman.lib.tile.core.TileValidator
 */
public final class TileProvider

For more informations and examples plz see the ReadMe from Lib-Tile-Core.

Lib-Tile-TransparentTextures

With the library Lib-Tile-TransparentTextures the developer have access to the tileset Transparent Textures from the internet page https://www.transparenttextures.com/ through the enum TransparentTexturesTile. Momentary that are 396 Tiles.

The tile images from this tileset are outsourced in a own library Lib-Tile-TransparentTextures-Images to reduce the size from this library. One more advance is that you can use an own TileLoader in combination with the library Lib-Tile-TransparentTextures. So you don't need to include the library Lib-Tile-TransparentTextures-Images into your project which size is momenatry 13MB.

Class TransparentTexturesTile:

/**
/**
 * The <code>enum</code> TransparentTexturesTileSet is a collection from 
 {@link com.github.naoghuman.lib.tile.core.Tile}s which representated the 
 * <code>Tileset</code> from the internet page <a href="https://www.transparenttextures.com/">https://www.transparenttextures.com/</a>.
 * <p>
 * The individual {@link com.github.naoghuman.lib.tile.core.Tile} can be loaded over the class 
 * {@link com.github.naoghuman.lib.tile.core.TileProvider} with the help from the concrete class 
 * {@link com.github.naoghuman.lib.tile.transparenttextures.images.TransparentTexturesTileLoader}.<br>
 * See there the methods 
 * {@link com.github.naoghuman.lib.tile.core.TileProvider#loadAsBackground(com.github.naoghuman.lib.tile.core.TileLoader, com.github.naoghuman.lib.tile.core.Tile) }
 * and {@link com.github.naoghuman.lib.tile.core.TileProvider#loadAsImage(com.github.naoghuman.lib.tile.core.TileLoader, com.github.naoghuman.lib.tile.core.Tile) }.
 * <p>
 * Additional informations:<br>
 * The parameters from the initialisation in this <code>Tileset</code> will be validate with the class 
 * {@link com.github.naoghuman.lib.tile.core.internal.DefaultTileValidator}. <code>DefaultTileValidator</code> 
 * allowed basic checks, for example if a {@link java.lang.String} is <code>NULL</code> or <code>EMPTY</code>.

public final class TransparentTexturesTileSet extends TileSet {

Lib-Tile-TransparentTextures-Images

The library Lib-Tile-TransparentTextures-Images contains all images from the tileset Transparent Textures which can be loaded with the help from the class TransparentTexturesTileLoader (which is contained in the library Lib-Tile-TransparentTextures).

Class TransparentTexturesTileLoader:

/**
 * The singleton <code>TransparentTexturesTileLoader</code> is a concrete implementation 
 * from the <code>Interface</code> {@link com.github.naoghuman.lib.tile.core.TileLoader}.

 * {@link com.github.naoghuman.lib.tile.transparenttextures.TransparentTexturesTile} as a 
 * {@link javafx.scene.layout.Background} or an {@link javafx.scene.image.Image} with the 
 * help from {@link com.github.naoghuman.lib.tile.core.TileProvider#loadAsBackground(TileLoader, Tile)}

public final class TransparentTexturesTileLoader extends TileLoader

Lib-Tile-Customized-Examples

The library Lib-Tile-Customized-Examples provides different examples about CustomizedTileSets. There will be following demonstrations:

  • An example which shows how to implemente a reduced TileSet. A reduced TileSet contains different predefined Tiles from an existing TileSet which is in this example TransparentTextures.
  • The next example (will be implemented in the future) shows an mixed TileSet. A mixed TileSet contains predefined and own Tiles.
  • The last example (will be implemented in the future) shows an own TileSet. Like own means this example contains only own Tiles.

Class CustomizedExampleReducedTileSet:

public final class CustomizedExampleReducedTileSet extends TileSet
