So, this blog’s been quiet for a very long time now. The reason is simple. Just as our tutorial began to get to the really interesting and cool aspects of Tower, the decision was made to begin making some rather dramatic changes to Tower’s API. This is par-for-the-course when working with very young frameworks, and Tower hasn’t even reached version 0.0.5.
I realized that anything I wrote would essentially be wasted words, and worse, would eventually be mis-information. Lot’s of work is being done to get Tower ready for a 0.5 release. I encourage you to follow along, in a variety of different places:
In the meantime, I’ve been working with some other very cool technology recently. Namely:
Including building a plugin to provide Sublime Text support for working with it:
Which is essentially a really cool Ruby DSL and tooling for building JavaFX applications.
So, expect to see some cool things here over the next few weeks as I share some of this awesome technology with you. And when the changes to Tower are ready to go, we’ll start a brand new tutorial, showing you exactly how to use what I believe will be a much more powerful, easier to use Tower.js.
