I hope you’ve enjoyed learning how JHipster can help you develop hip web applications! It’s a nifty project with an easy-to-use entity generator, a pretty UI, and many Spring Boot best-practice patterns. The project team follows six simple policies, paraphrased here:

  1. The development team votes on policies.

  2. Use technologies with their default configuration and best practices as much as possible.

  3. Only add options when there is sufficient added value in the generated code.

  4. Use strict versions for third-party libraries.

  5. Provide similar user/developer experience across different options as much as possible.

  6. Developer experience can take precedence over above policies.

These policies help the project maintain its sharp edge and streamline its development process. If you have features you’d like to add or if you’d like to refine existing features, please follow the project and help with its development and support. We’re always looking for help!

Now that you’ve learned how to use Angular, Bootstrap, Spring Boot, and microservices with JHipster, go forth and develop awesome applications!
