    generator-jhipster-nodejs, the official NodeJS blueprint that uses NestJS TypeScript Framework for your backend. We encourage you to use it and give us your feedback.


    For the features of the last release refers to CHANGELOG.md.


    The UI is inherited from standard JHipster app client. So only backend generation changes. For this, a live app running is less useful than the code and the app structure shows in:

    Greetings, nodejs Hipster!

    This project adds nodejs for your backend, all TypeScript files generation, not Java!, to the JHipster application ūüėé. It is based on JHipster Blueprint ūüĒĶ, that is meant to be used in a JHipster application.

    The generator applies this standard configuration for the NodeJS app:

    • The app starts with four seed users (admin, basic user and anonymous roles), as standard JHipster monolithic app, with SQLite for dev and configurable sql db for prod
    • The app uses TypeORM and asks you a question for another sql db
    • TypeORM is also used for the automatically migration and versioning of the database scripts
    • The app runs also as a full stack app including, for the monolitich choice, the Angular/React client with the home page set for NHipster and CRUD operations for entity generated with subgenerator and jdl import

    A previous of a jwt auth app:


    As this is a JHipster blueprint, we expect you have JHipster and its related tools already installed:

    ūüöÄ How to get started

    1. Make sure you have followed the JHipster installation guide and that both yeoman and jhipster are installed.
    2. Install the package with npm install -g generator-jhipster-nodejs
    3. And generate the application with nhipster

    Installation Details

    With NPM

    To install this blueprint:

    npm install -g generator-jhipster-nodejs

    To update this blueprint:

    npm update -g generator-jhipster-nodejs

    With Yarn

    To install this blueprint:

    yarn global add generator-jhipster-nodejs

    To update this blueprint:

    yarn global upgrade generator-jhipster-nodejs

    ūüö¶ What we have now

    This is a blueprint that is runnable by:

    jhipster --blueprints nodejs

    However, it also ships with an nhipster CLI that you can use as a shortcut.

    ‚úÖ General App generation

    • nhipster

    ‚úÖ Controller generation

    • nhipster spring-controller <controller-name>

    ‚úÖ Service generation

    • nhipster spring-service <service-name>

    ‚úÖ Entity generation

    • nhipster entity <entity-name>

    ‚úÖ JDL Entity model support generation

    • nhipster import-jdl my_file.jdl

    For the last, in the test-integration/samples/FOLDER_NAME-jdl there are some examples of jdl models.

    ūüõ† Steps to develop a generator feature and test it

    Shell steps:

    $ git clone https://github.com/jhipster/generator-jhipster-nodejs.git
    $ cd generator-jhipster-nodejs
    $ git checkout -b feature/my-feature
    $ npm install
    $ npm link
    $ cd ..
    $ git clone https://github.com/jhipster/generator-jhipster.git
    $ cd generator-jhipster
    $ npm install
    $ npm link
    $ cd ..
    $ mkdir test-generation
    $ cd test-generation
    $ npm link generator-jhipster
    $ npm link generator-jhipster-nodejs

    Now you will develop under the generator-jhipster-nodejs that you have cloned with git. After finish, to generate the app and check your feature, run in test-generation folder:

    • nhipster
