I want to introduce you to Amino - a graphic library and a very cool UI toolkit. The library was originally developed by Leonardo Sketch as an auxiliary, but now it becomes an independent product.

Whoever wants to start, can read getting started , which will show how to make a completely basic application. Amino's Swing developers seem fairly obvious, but it’s important to take into account certain differences:

What is the difference between Amino and JavaFX and other UI platforms

The main influence on Amino was JavaFX and Swing. At JavaOne 2010, Oracle announced that JavaFX 2.0 will follow the path with Java, which makes JavaFX even more similar to Amino. But despite all the similarities, there are several differences:

What is expected from the ultimate developers

Amino is in the early alpha version and everyone clearly understands what this means. Aspirations are certainly great, but so far we have a slow, miserable and buggy release.

If you are interested in this project, then there is the following front of tasks:
