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).

It is FXML friendly, the demo above was in itself created using FXML.
It’s a project that is under development and so the API is very likely to change with time.
Update (5 March 2018): Check out the new Ribbon documentation page for updated information. Some things have changed.
