Release Build Status

UiBooster is a lean library to create fast and easy dialogs for utility tools. It equips your applications blazing fast with GUI components to increase the comfort for your users.

It's based on Java swing components to run on current JREs without any struggle. This library encapsulates the long and sometimes complicated GUI code and leaves more clarity in your project.

I decided to create this project, because I missed something like zenity for my Java applications.

If you like this project, and you want to keep me awake 🤪, please:

                    "Whats your favorite movie?",
                    Arrays.asList("Pulp Fiction", "Bambi", "The Godfather", "Hangover"))
            .addLabel("Choose an action")
            .addButton("half full", () -> booster.showInfoDialog("Optimist"))
            .addButton("half empty", () -> booster.showInfoDialog("Pessimist"))
            .addSlider("How many liters did you drink today?", 0, 5, 1, 5, 1)

// use .run() instead of show() to open the formBuilder without blocking.

The form is very powerful and provides a lot of features:

  • add your own elements (Example)
  • put multiple elements in one row (Example)
  • add a listener for any changes (Example)
  • add a listener on window close (Example)
  • set window setting, f.e. size and position (Example)
