How do you break a Monolith into Microservices at Scale? This ebook shows strategies and techniques for building scalable and resilient microservices.

The ribbon is a control that was brought up with office and has since been getting progressively more important with its inclusion in windows built in apps like Windows Explorer or MS Paint.

It replaces the use of menus, occupies more space but favors discoverability.

And so I’ve decided to create this control in java, particularly by using javafx (image below).

The source code is available at https://github.com/dukke/FXRibbon (the icons in the figure above are not included). There are a couple of demo apps that show how the ribbon is used.

It’s a project that is under development and so the API is very likely to change with time.
