News and Updates

  • Skins can now be developed using web technologies only (html+css+javascript). See MinimalWeb skin. No need for any Java or BeanShell knowledge in order to create the settings user interface of a skin. Just add a "ui.html" file to the skin's folder and jAlbum will pick up the named variables from the html form of that html file.
  • Skin developers may now also use JavaFX technology to design skin user interfaces with minimum coding efforts using Scene Builder. See MinimalFX skin. The visual layout is stored in a FXML file ("ui.fxml"). The needed logic can be added in JavaScript using an "onload.js" file.
