When generating your application with JHipster.NET, you can decide to generate some optional Tests :

  • Performance tests with Gatling.

Today we’re going to talk about Cypress, a next generation front end testing tool built for the modern web.

Generate Cypress tests

When generating your application, make sure to select Cypress (by pressing the space bar).


JHipster is a well-known platform for generating modern application in java world.

JHipster provides a blueprints system that allows to override default behavior of the generator.


JHipster.NET is a blueprint that overrides the back-end part, originally generated in Spring Boot, with a back-end in ASP.NET Core. For the front-end all the base generator fronts are available (Angular, React, Vue.js) moreover you can also generate a Blazor or a Xamarin front.

Generate your first application

To install JHipster base generator and its JHipster.NET blueprint, run this command :

npm install -g generator-jhipster generator-jhipster-dotnetcore

Move to any empy folder you want to, and generate your full-stack…


JHipster is a famous generator allowing you to generate modern applications.

One of its official blueprints is called JHipster.NET. It allows to override the back-end part in core (instead of Java spring boot).

To take advantage of this blueprint, we will generate a modern application with a xamarin front-end. Meaning that both front-end and back-end will use C#.

Why Xamarin ?

With a C#-shared codebase, developers can use Xamarin tools to write native Android, iOS, and Windows apps with native user interfaces and share code across multiple platforms, including Windows, macOS, and Linux.

Choosing Xamarin allows to make a modern cross platform…
