A React Native boilerplate for JHipster apps, complete with authentication, an entity generator, E2E tests, and more.

For a quick tour, check out the Sample Application for Android, the YouTube Demo or the blog post.

Uses the following libraries:


Getting Started


  • Node v8+
    • Verify version with node -v
  • React Native setup
  • ignite-cli installed (>= v2.0.0)
    • Install with npm install -g ignite-cli
    • Verify version with ignite --version
  • OAuth2 iOS apps require Cocoapods to be installed
  • Not required but highly recommended, Reactotron makes debugging super simple and comes preconfigured

To generate an app, run the following command:

ignite new SampleApp --boilerplate ignite-jhipster

Answer the prompts, entering the path to your JHipster app and choosing any plugins you want. The generator will create a new directory containing the project (preconfigured for both iOS and Android).

After generating, you can use the entity generator, JDL importer, and other commands.

Note: When running your JHipster backend locally for Android, make sure to run adb reverse tcp:8080 tcp:8080 so the app can communicate with your backend.
