    If you're curious just like me, you can try to generate a CQRS app from their Github repository. It find this being a good way to discover this "not so well-known" pattern.

    https://github.com/jhipster/jhipster-dotnetcore is quite nice and lets you generate code using their JDL format which is quite easy to use, not really a starter kit though, goes a bit further than the basics
  • Has anyone use the AbP framework? What do you think of it?
    reddit.com/r/dotnet | 2020-12-28
    Hi, i'm the maintener of JHipster.NET (https://github.com/jhipster/jhipster-dotnetcore). The advantage of JHipster.NET it's that the code is generated so you can do whatever you want with it. And there's less magic. That's what i like in this project compared to the other libraries.

  • Ć Programming Language
    news.ycombinator.com | 2021-10-08
    Not talking about the interesting naming or the circumstances around this particular implementation, what do the people on HN think about the concept of such transpilation?

    I recall taking a course in university about model driven programming - the idea of creating an abstract representation of logic, interfaces and other system components and then generating either full implementations or stubs in multiple languages was an interesting one, even if implementations were really hard to get right.

    In practice, i've mostly only seen one language specific model driven design tools, like JHipster (https://www.jhipster.tech/) or the likes of JPA be reasonably successful, since there's a lot of problems with supporting abstractions across different languages and runtimes, but what has been the experience of others in that regard?

  • Software Dev Can't Be Automated – It’s a Creative Process with an Unknown Goal
    news.ycombinator.com | 2021-08-15
    There certainly have been attempts to do this to varying degrees over time. For example, in Java, there is JHipster which introduced a DSL to describe a number of application concepts and then generated code based on those: https://www.jhipster.tech/

    The problem is that these approaches tend to fail whenever you need to either edit the generated code while not breaking the generation logic, or implement more complex logic and cases that aren't covered, or even just integrate with external libraries without digging too deep in the generation logic to assimilate the external code within the codebase.

    Now, there are other, more limited cases in which this can work, especially with frameworks like Ruby on Rails or even Laravel, which provide all sorts of code generation logic for specific situations, given that they're typically not integrated with that many libraries, in which case they just make development faster and simpler.

    Personally, i think that there's a lot of utility to be had in this approach, especially for situations like schema-first database development, or even generating migrations based on the model classes within the application. MySQL Workbench actually lets you generate DDL statements based on ER models, as well as synchronizing partial changes in a live database, which is useful in practice, yet also really niche and probably hard to implement behind the scenes.

    Perhaps that's why sadly model driven architecture hasn't really become all that popular outside of academia.

    Such starter kit exist, e.g. JHipster[1]. The problem is that after you've generated the starter code, this big heap of code (that you're not familiar with the details of) is now yours to maintain and upgrade.

  • The programming languages I like and why I like them
    dev.to | 2021-07-09
    So if I would start my own company with a web application as the product, I would 100% go with JVM on the backend with either Java or Kotlin, and of course I will build it using JHipster.

What are some alternatives?
