igniter.fx--The afterburner.fx Archetype Released

igniter.fx version 1.9.1 is released. igniter.fx is a maven archetype (=wizard), which generates a JavaFX application based on afterburner.fx 1.5.1

To create a JavaFX maven project with a sample application execute the following command from the CLI:

mvn archetype:generate -Dfilter=com.airhacks:igniter

The sample application was extended to demonstrate dependency injection of a custom object (java.time.LocalDate).

public class FollowmePresenter implements Initializable {

    Label message;
    Tower tower;

    private String prefix;

    private String happyEnding;

    private LocalDate date;


See the full code: FollowmePresenter.java

You can configure injectable properties with a java.util.Map

public class App extends Application {

    public void start(Stage stage) throws Exception {
         * Properties of any type can be easily injected.
        LocalDate date = LocalDate.of(4242, Month.JULY, 21);
        Map<Object, Object> customProperties = new HashMap<>();
        customProperties.put("date", date);
         * any function which accepts an Object as key and returns
         * and return an Object as result can be used as source.

See the full code: App.java.

You can also clone the sample application directly: https://github.com/AdamBien/followme.fx.
