In late 2017, JHipster was nominated for / won several awards in the tech innovation space. It is easy to see why. This tool automatically generates not only boiler plate code for full stack applications based on spring boot + front end (either react or angular at the time of this writing), but it also generates boiler plate for connecting to a number of databases, tools for front end authentication, and even user management. Each of these things is a somewhat time consuming task, and having a tool that connects all of these dots out the gate can be extremely useful. While I suspect many enterprises will struggle to use all of the abilities of a tool like this due to legacy systems, small projects, startups, and people looking to learn about how some of these technologies could definitely benefit from JHipster. I will hopefully see about tackling a project using JHipster soon.
