Java UI Builder for the Browser and Desktop

Last week I showed an example of writing just a few lines of UI code and running it on the desktop and in the browser, using SnapCode, SnapKit and TeaVM.

Well that was downright barbaric. There is a better way to design UI than code, compile and iterate: it’s a UI builder. This week I get rid of those extra lines of code by generating the UI in SnapCode’s UI builder. Much more civilized – and perhaps the most high-level “Hello World” ever seen.

This is the system I wish Flash had been: Visual designer, code editing, project file management, native browser (no plugin), native desktop and support for the most popular programming language on the planet.

SnapCode is a free IDE for education. I’d love to hear feedback. Please like the blog, video, tweet (and retweet!) if you’d like to see more.
