NetBeans - PalmOfMyHand - Dance Demo

I like making NetBeans dance:

NetBeans - PalmOfMyHand - Dance Demo from Emilian Bold on Vimeo.

The above video is a little something I've obsessed about this weekend. It all started from a song actually: Swedish House Mafia - One (Your Name). But I couldn't publish a video with that as a soundtrack so I've used this little Creative Commons gem instead.

It's basically a NetBeans module that plays an mp3 and syncs everything else to the beat.

There are a lot of NetBeans Platform and NetBeans IDE APIs touched in this simple demo. See if you can make a full list: Progress API, StatusLineElementProvider, Editor API, etc.

If people are curious I might write more about this. Turns out on Java one of the harder things is mp3 playback.

:-D Thats neat.

I love music and I love code.
This is a match made in heaven.

Cool Toy.

Emilian, please DO write more about this for us mere mortals without your advanced NetBeans skills. I think that you've really hit on something here! Next step is perhaps to allow playing from an Internet radio station, the possibilities are endless ... You've made a rod for your own back.

And I wonder if Eclipse (or any of the other IDEs) can match this.

This is really cool. Where is the code? ;-)

Agree with John, where is the code?

I plan to write in the following weeks a technical article for DZone where I'll explain what I did.

But this wasn't meant to be an open source demo, it's just a dance demo. Enjoy it for what it is.

Fantastic, really enjoyed the demo!
Angelo D'Agnano said…
Fair enough Emilian.
I am looking forward to read your article.

Definitely it is a nice showcase of the NetBeans APIs.
