And for the record, I'll be adding a 'dark theme' style option once SB2.0 is a little more mature ;-)

I thought about contributing to OpenJFX for quite some time but would actually rather spend time on improving SceneBuilder than working on juicy API internals that are better left to guys that truly know what they do ;) Things like better IDE integration or making the keyframe based animation API accessible in the GUI already (To at least partially get to where JavaFX 1 Designer once was or wanted to be) come to my mind.

Seeing that the JFX team probably has a very tight schedule and spent a lot of time open sourcing the core components already I’m afraid that a OSS SceneBuilder would be kind of impossible. Am I too pessimistic?
