I’ve been looking for a tool like this to easily create in Spring Framework a Spring Boot with Maven project setup for a while now and is happy to stumble upon this tool https://start.spring.io/.

Things I love about this:

  • Quickly generate spring boot project file that can be imported quickly in Eclipse or other preferred IDE.
  • Lets you choose which maven plugins to be included.
  • There is an explore feature that shows you the folders and files inside the zip file.
