Spring Boot Rest Generator is a python Library used to generate source code modules starting from config files . The Generated source code is a CRUD Rest Spring Boot Server.

Usage no npm install needed!

<script type="module">
  import sbrGenerator from '';



Build Status npm version

SBR generator is a Spring Boot Rest Generator npm binary cli used to generate source code modules starting from config file.

The Generated source code is a CRUD Rest Spring Boot Server, ready to build and run .

How to install

It's a node package with CLI (command line interface) binary , can be installed by

npm install -g sbr-generator


To work correctly SBR needs python to be installed . All needed python mudules with be installed automatically when installing SBR.

How To use

To Generate a ready to use Spring boot Rest Server , SBR need a configuration file You can start by using the example one

~$ sbrgen  -h
usage: SBR Generator [-h] [-v] [-t] [-s] -c CONFIGFILE [-o OUTPUTDIR]

SBR generator: Generate Spring Boot Rest source code.

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -v, --mode-verbose    Enable verbose traces
  -t, --enable-tests    Enable tests
  -s, --disable-security
                        Disable security
  -c CONFIGFILE, --config-file CONFIGFILE
                        The Yaml config file
                        The Output folder where to store generated source code

Additionally , SBR support :

  • Verobse mode using -v
  • Disabling Security based on spring role and JWT token mode using -s
  • Enabling generating tests using -t

Like Below, to generate project with security enabled and tests using example config file :

~$ sbrgen  -v -t -c  examples/config.yaml

This will generate the next folder strcutue :

$  tree serverTest-0.0.1-SNAP/

└── src
    ├── main
    │   ├── java
    │   │   └── com

            └── com
                └── easin
                    └── serverTest

How to use Generated source code

The generated source code is a spring boot rest maven project with a read me file ,a complete project ready to use :

To build and Run :

cd testServer-0.0.1/
mvn clean package -Dmaven.test.skip=true
mvn spring-boot:run -Dmaven.test.skip=true

To Run Crud unit tests ( already generated ):

cd testServer-0.0.1/
mvn test

Configuration File

The Configuration is a yaml file having 3 sections : project, logging and entities.

project section

Contains all project specific data used in the pom file and the Readme and in sourec conde generations ..

    longname: Easy Soft IN Selling Server # the project long name used in the pom files and the Readme     
    description: Easin Selling Server     # a description for the project
    url:           # the url of the project
    name: serverTest                      # the short name
    restPath: /serverTest                 # the rest base path generated
    package: com.easin.serverTest         # the package of the project
    version: 0.0.1-SNAP                   # the version of the prpoject
    security:                             # security data if activated to generate
      extraroles:                         # security extra roles (*SBR* already manage admin and user) please do not prefix roles with ROLE_ !      
        - "PROVIDER"
        - "CONSUMER"

logging section

it will be used to generate the src/main/resources/log4j2.xml file , extra configuration need to be added manually to the file .

  RootLoggerLevel: trace
    - name: com.easin
      level: trace
    - name: org.springframework.web.client.RestTemplate
      level: trace
    - name: org.apache.catalina.filters.RequestDumperFilter
      level: trace

entitiess section

This section is used to generate java package for entity's, services, controllers, and beyond : @Entity class and JpaRepository for each one .. User: be Aware that the User entity is specific as it already managed by SBR, when using it on your entity, SBR will merge your fiels and his.

  - name: User
    comment: Class representing the User parameters
      - name: mail
        type: String
        comment: the official Mail of the User
          - "@Email"
      - name: phone
        type: String
        comment: the official Phone number of the User
        annotations:  []
      - name: name
        comment: name of the User
          - "@Column(nullable = false)"
        type: String
  - name: Company
    crudRest: true
    baseclass: BaseEntity
    comment: Class representing the company parameters
      - name: user
        comment: User created
          - '@JoinColumn(name="user_id", insertable=false, updatable=false)'
          - "@ManyToOne(targetEntity = User.class, fetch = FetchType.EAGER)"
          - "@JsonIgnore"
          - "@ToString.Exclude"
        type: User

How it's Works

SBR is using python and jinja2 Template machine.. SBR will also generate Swapper html api pages on :
OR json format under
