JHipster release 4.5.0
Introducing the JHipster CLI
This new release has a very important update, that will affect everyone: the JHipster CLI!
This means that instead of typing
yo jhipster, you will just type
jhipster on the command line.
- Everybody will gain 3 keystrokes, an important productivity enhancement :-)
- Most importantly, this allows us to provide autocompletion (only on Mac and Linux), which means you can use the tab key after entering
jhipster. As this is the first release, we only provide basic autocompletion for the moment, but you can expect more in the future.
OpenShift support by Red Hat
Please note that this is an official contribution from Red Hat to the project!
