Ilves | Vaadin

Ilves is a feature packed seed for responsive web apps. If JEE portal feels too heavy for you then Ilves may be a better fit for your project.

Ilves enables lean development and deployment of responsive web apps:

  • minimizing Zero Sprint length (embedded jetty and WAR seed projects),
  • accelerating development cycles (embedded web server),
  • catering for common functionality (built-in features),
  • minimizing web UI code complexity (Vaadin framework) and
  • enabling one step cloud deployment (Heroku) or
  • easy setup to other cloud environments like Amazon AWS.

Features and architecture details are available at Ilves Wiki which you can find from Links section of this page.

Feature highlight: FIDO U2F login support. Feature highlight: GitHub OAuth login support. Feature highlight: Google Authenticator two factor login support.

Please take look at "5 minute tutorial" for detailed description about development cycle.
