I use Idea with a Java 8 (I don't use Gradle), works well for me:
Developing an application that uses JavaFX 8 in Eclipse is as simple as installing e(fx)clipse.
Tom Schindl also did some work to allow you to use eclipse to make use of new Java 8 language features such as lambdas:

Clarified answer based on Tom's advice.
I use the Netbeans nightly builds and they are, for the most part, pretty stable...
Also what is Gradle even used for? It seems like that and Jemmy were additions for Unit testing and such?
I think you are mixing things! You can happily use the all in one downloads if you are only developing JavaFX applications. The preview build is only needed if you want:
a) make fixes to OpenJFX sources
b) use Java8 syntax yourself
If I read the request appropiately he only wants to use JavaFX8 (=programm against the JavaFX API) and for that he can use our all-in-one downloads as outlined at http://www.efxclipse.org/install.html#for-the-lazy
Thanks for the clarification Tom, I edited my previous reply.
e(fx)clipse is a great toolset.
