What is JHipster?


JHipster is a development platform to quickly generate, develop, and deploy modern web applications and microservice architectures. We support many frontend technologies, including Angular, React, and Vue. We even have mobile app support for Ionic and React Native! On the backend, we support Spring Boot (with Java or Kotlin), Micronaut, Quarkus, Node.js, and .NET. For deployment, we embrace cloud native principles with Docker and Kubernetes. Deployment support exists for AWS, Azure, Cloud Foundry, Google Cloud Platform, Heroku, and OpenShift.


Our goal is to generate a complete and modern web app or microservice architecture, unifying:

  • A high-performance and robust server-side stack with excellent test coverage
  • A sleek, modern, mobile-first UI with Angular, React, or Vue + Bootstrap for CSS
  • A powerful workflow to build your application with Webpack and Maven or Gradle
  • A resilient microservice architecture with cloud native principles in mind
  • Infrastructure as code so you can quickly deploy to the ☁️
