What is JHipster?


JHipster is a development platform to generate, develop and deploy Spring Boot + Angular/React Web applications and Spring microservices.


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

  • A high-performance and robust Java stack on the server side with Spring Boot
  • A sleek, modern, mobile-first front-end with Angular, React and Bootstrap
  • A robust microservice architecture with the JHipster Registry, Netflix OSS, the ELK stack and Docker
  • A powerful workflow to build your application with Yeoman, Webpack and Maven/Gradle

Sample & Sources

You can checkout a sample generated Angular application here.

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