ScalaFX Ensemble provides a gallery of over 60 sample applications illustrating how ScalaFX can be used for creation of user interfaces controls, charts, graphics, media and web views.
Each example can be executed within the ScalaFX Ensemble application, its source code can be easily seen there too. Example can be saved, from within ScalaFX Ensemble application, as an stand-alone SBT project. IntelliJ IDEA can load SBT projects if you have IntelliJ's Scala plugin installed. SBT projects can be converted to Eclipse projects using sbteclipse plugin.
ScalaFX Ensemble can be used by ScalaFX beginners as a set of examples and by more experienced users as a visual reference. Larger size screenshots and information about changes can be found on the ScalaFX Ensemble Home Page.
This project is inspired by JavaFX Ensemble.
How to run ScalaFX Ensemble
ScalaFX Ensemble can be easily run from the source code, instructions are provided below. In the future, we will also provide an excitable version.
To compile and run the project you only need to have:
- Java JDK 11 or newer
- SBT 1 or newer
- ScalaFX Ensemble source code. All missing dependencies, including proper version of Scala and ScalaFX, will be downloaded by SBT.
Compile and Run using SBT
- Open command prompt
- Change directory to where you saved the ScalaFX Ensemble source code (directory containing this README file).
When run the very first time, SBT will download all needed dependencies including Scala and ScalaFX.
Saving and Building Individual Examples
ScalaFX Ensemble Application gives you ability to save each example as a separate SBT project. You can then build and run that example.
To save an example as a stand-alone SBT project:
- Start ScalaFX Ensemble Application
- Select an an example from the panel on the left. For instance "Charts" > "Adv Candle Stick Chart"
- Select on "Source" tab above the example
- Select "Save SBT Project..." then select empty directory where to save the project
To run the saved example, assuming that you have SBT and JDK installed:
- From a command line prompt navigate to the directory you saved the example
- At command line type:
sbt run. This will download necessary dependencies, build, and run the example.
Compile and Run using Intellij IDEA
IntelliJ IDEA with Scala plugin can import project settings from an SBT configuration.
File > Import Project... and point to location of the ScalaFX Ensemble
Ensemble requires some resources to be generated from the sources to run. To best way to run it is be defining an SBT task in Run Configuration:
- Select "Run" > "Edit Configurations"
- Clock on "+" and then on "SBT task"
- Give it a name "Ensemble"
- In "Task" field type "run" and click OK
Installer for stand-alone version of ScalaFX Ensemble Application are available for Windows, Mac OS, and Linux from the Releases page.
To build an installer you need to have Install4J installed.
Use SBT task
install4j -m _os_, for instance to create Windows installer:
sbt> install4j -m windows
Note that due to native dependencies in JavaFX distribution you have to build installer on a destination OS. Current SBT setup does not allow for cross-building on different OS. It is technically possible but not currently implemented in this project.
For more information about SBT
install4j task see sbt-install4j.
