New Nebula SWT Widgets

Did you know about the Nebula project at Eclipse? If not, you should… Nebula is a source for custom SWT widgets and other UI components:


Nebula also acts as an incubator for the SWT project at Eclipse. Here’s the list of widgets in Nebula so far:

But wait, there’s more! Tom Schindl, the new Nebula project co-lead, sent out an email detailing some new Nebula contributions on the horizon:

  • Office Ribbon from Emil Crumhorn (Provides a Microsoft Office like Ribbon)
  • Rich-Texteditor from Pavel Petrochenko (Provides HTML-Editing-Facilities)
  • RadioGroup/RadioItem from Matthew Hall (Provides a List-like Group-Widget)
  • XViewer from OSEE (Provides a fancy framework around SWT-Table/Tree)

If you have any widgets you have developed personally and would like to see them used elsewhere, why not consider donating them to the Nebula project?

    I’m intested about seeing Composite table in action.

    Does anyone has already worked with to provide a snippet ?

  2. Fred, I don’t see any snippets either for CompositeTable. However, why don’t you email the nebula-dev mailing list and ask for one :)?
