In the first part of this series we introduced the basics of JHipster – we scaffolded a basic monolithic Java/Angular application and used JHipster’s command line options to generate some entities, services, and web modules for creating, retrieving, updating and deleting those entities.Continue reading

A Stack for The Ages – Part 1
Putting together and bootstrapping a solid application complete with all the building blocks can be quite an undertaking at the best of times, we have to consider so many things-for example:Continue reading

The all-new OK! Magazine
Last month, the Boyle Software team working with American Media, Inc., launched a completely redesigned and upgraded website for AMI’s popular celebrity magazine OK! – https://okmagazine.com
Lots of new features were introduced with the new OK! revamp: an “Exclusives” carousel, a “Blast from the Past” block, “Trending” zones, and a bunch of UX improvements.

To fix this issue, Google recommends us to split our styles into two parts: critical (above-the-fold) and non-critical. Critical CSS should be inlined in the header meanwhile non-critical needs to be loaded asynchronously, so a user could see styled content as soon as possible. Continue reading

I thought hard about which new front-end development tools I have been using lately, but couldn’t think of anything that had had a significant impact on my professional life recently. Then I looked at today’s date and I realized that it is my 20-year anniversary here at Boyle Software. These twenty years certainly had a significant impact on my life…
