SB Kit is an API allowing to integrate SB functionality into the GUI of a third party tool, such as an IDE. With the 2.0 release, SB code base has been deeply re-factored to make it modular such that each of the Panels (Content, Inspector, Hierarchy, etc...) can be instantiated and brought up independently of the others. In a nutshell, the SB Kit API allows to orchestrate the editing of an FXML document and to control the various panels.

The API Javadoc of the SB Kit is available [1] for download with the SB 2.0 early access builds.

Hello OpenJFXers !

We're very happy to announce that Scene Builder is now open source, as a part 
of the OpenJFX project.
The whole Scene Builder functionality is available, including the SB Kit API as 
well as the standalone SB application.
The only part of the product which remains closed is the native 
packaging/installer code.
SB code is available in rt/apps/scenebuilder/ under the terms of a BSD-style 
license, similar to JavaFX samples.

You are all welcome to contribute.
