How do I run Entando Blueprint?

Hi everyone,

I recently discovered the JHipster code generation and I’m trying to generate a microservice for my Entando Bundle using Entando Blueprint, but I can’t figure out how to proceed.

Can anyone help me or point me in the right direction, please?

Thanks in advance

The general steps are:

  1. Install JHipster (
    • Use JHipster version 6.9.x for Entando 6.2 or 6.3.1 for Entando 6.1.
  2. Install the Entando Blueprint with npm install -g generator-jhipster-entando
  3. Run JHipster with the Entando Blueprint jhipster --blueprints entando
    • There are lots of choices to make here and they are up to you depending on the app that you want to build. Check out the Entando docs for some more detail on recommended config for Entando microservices
  4. Add some entities to your microservice with jhipster entity <your-entity-name>
    • Replace with the name of the object you want to create

After step four you’ll have a runnable SpringBoot microservice and a set of starter micro frontends ready to build and deploy to Entando or to run in a local dev environment.
