More F3 Demos
By user12610627 on Nov 28, 2006
Here are a few more F3 demos.
Several are replicas of Flash programs:
- Bentley Continental Flying Spur
- Lotus Cars USA
- Nike 2005 Home Page
Others are replicas of Java programs written by Romain Guy:
- Spline Editor
There's also a (partial) replica of the Winamp MP3 player, which uses the pure Java JLayer MP3 player to play MP3 files and supports Winamp classic skins (use the Next/Prev buttons to switch skins). Interestingly, I never actually installed Winamp or ran it myself. I simply programmed the F3 version according to the skin specification. Winamp skins are actually just zip files containing Windows bitmap (bmp) files with certain conventional names and specific layouts.
A Google search demo using Google's soap API, which demonstrates HTML templating with F3, and also has a fancy search control based on artwork from a Yahoo widget.
Finally, there's a standalone version of the interactive F3 editor, "F3Pad". This was inspired in part by XAMLPad. Note that other than watching the XAMLPad video, I've never actually used it.
The demo launcher also includes all the demos I've previously posted. Remember if you're using Java 1.6 you'll need to click on the F3 icon in your system tray to shut down the whole application.
