What is JHipster?

+ +

JHipster is a Yeoman generator, used to create a Spring Boot + Angular project.


Our goal is to generate for you a complete and modern Web app, unifying:

  • A high-performance and robust Java stack on the server side with Spring Boot
  • A sleek, modern, mobile-first front-end with Angular and Bootstrap
  • A powerful workflow to build your application with Yeoman, Webpack/Gulp and Maven/Gradle

Sample & Sources

You can checkout a sample generated AngularJS 1 application here.

You can checkout a sample generated Angular 2 application here.

JHipster is Open Source, and all development is done on GitHub
