Secondly, I'm looking for sources on how to write a new javafx platform.
Google points me to monocle and it's *Platform implementations. Are there
other sources of documentation or pointers or 'must-known's?
I already made wayland java bindings (
https://github.com/Zubnix/wayland-java-bindings ) and wrote a simple
wayland compositor ( https://github.com/Zubnix/westmalle ) all in pure
Java. So the wayland part is already covered.
Thanks in advance, I'll update this post with my progressions.
I am not aware of anyone doing a wayland port yet. It certainly should be a
reasonable thing to do, using Glass/Monocle, we already support a similar setup with
EGL->Framebuffer and Software -> Framebuffer.
Glancing at your wayland-java-bindings I see mention of EGL :-)
Note however, Monocle does its own "windows" virtually. Wayland was designed as
a composition as well as a framebuffer engine. Monocle will want to create a mono native
window which acts as our display, that we then render onto.
Note that Monocle supports a number of platforms and rendering paths, starting
Which hardware are you going to try this on ?
