We, at Jiratech, strive to empower innovation and build customer-driven innovative products with embedded immune system*.

We also have a program, Jiratech Foundation, in which we give back to the community and engage in social projects ( more on this, here: ).


On this note, those are the boilerplates that we created and we use regularly:


1) Java Spring Boilerplate: dockerized, API-first 3 layer architecture with PostgreSQL and Minio connectors.



2) NodeJS Boilerplate: ExpressJs-based, typescript-adapted, 3 layer architecture with PostgreSQL connector.



Those boilerplates have a unique characteristic - full integration with OpenApi v3 ( documentation here: We wrote a tutorial on integration with ReactJS here.


Those boilerplates use a single, descriptive JSON of the APIs and DTO ( for typescript, interfaces) that map and enforce the request and response and also generate the APIs ( Java) / handle the route components ( NodeJs).

You can find this schema here:


I hope this helps you speed up reliable development as it did for us!

If you want to contribute or comment, we welcome any feedback

Coming soon: ReactJS boilerplate and React-Native boilerplate with TypeScript and OpenApi.
