Hilla integrates a Spring Boot Java backend with a reactive TypeScript front end. It helps you build apps faster with type-safe server communication, included UI components, and integrated tooling.

Simple type-safe server communication

Hilla helps you access the backend easily with type-safe endpoints.


// Type info is automatically generated based on Java
import Person from 'Frontend/generated/com/vaadin/hilla/demo/entity/Person';
import { PersonEndpoint } from 'Frontend/generated/endpoints';

async function getPeopleWithPhoneNumber() {
  const people: Person[] = await PersonEndpoint.findAll();

  // Compile error: The property is 'phone', not 'phoneNumber'
  return people.filter((person) => !!person.phoneNumber);

console.log('People with phone numbers: ', getPeopleWithPhoneNumber());

public class PersonEndpoint {

    private PersonRepository repository;

    public PersonEndpoint(PersonRepository repository) {
        this.repository = repository;

    public @Nonnull List<@Nonnull Person> findAll() {
        return repository.findAll();

public class Person {

    private Integer id;

    @Nonnull private String firstName;
    @Nonnull private String lastName;
    @Email @Nonnull private String email;
    @Nonnull private String phone;

    // getters, setters
