Introduction to JHipster
Dennis Sharpe
Dennis Sharpe
Ippon, Software architect

Have you heard of the open-source application generator called JHipster? JHipster spins up a Spring Boot application with a modern javascript front-end in minutes. You get to decide what kind of database you want, what javascript framework (i.e. Angular, React, Vue), security, and various other aspects. After generating entities, full CRUD screens are generated in your chosen javascript framework. I'll describe how it works and give a short demo. The generated application is a pure Spring Boot application without custom files and is production-ready. The latest version even supports reactive programming! JHipster can be used to start a new project or even just to help you learn how a modern web application is built.
