Java implementation of (gzip compatible) Zopfli algorithm: http://bit.ly/1wekTq9 ~5% filesize win over gzip... I'll take it!

Yes, the runtime is an order of magnitude higher when compared to gzip, so this is best used for static assets - i.e. compress once at build-time and serve. For dynamic resources, stick to gzip.

P.S. For background on Zopfli, see: http://googledevelopers.blogspot.com/2013/02/compress-data-more-densely-with-zopfli.html

Loved +O'Reilly Open Source Convention (OSCON) this week. Portland was amazing, as usual. Loved hanging out with friends and family (from Salem, OR). Lived the Portland Brewer's festival, too. But now it's time to go home. I'm in the airport and the TSA agent recognized the +RabbitMQ pattern on my t-shirt from a previous traveler who had it on his or her hoodie. No doubt someone who won it at the +pivotal booth at +O'Reilly Open Source Convention (OSCON) :-) I'm boarding for the flight home and one traveler brought +voodoodoughnuts on the flight! Makes sense. That place is so good that people queue past 22:00 on weekends for MOAR donuts! As +Dan Allen tweeted a few years ago after a previous OSCON: "way to be, Portland."

Nice post! To be clear, JHipster builds on top of Spring Boot - it is basically a code-generator for Spring Boot applications. 

The monitoring and metrics support, for example, actually comes from Spring Boot's `spring-boot-starter-actuator` library. 

Nice post! 
In this development productivity blog, I share my excitements about being productive using approaches such as code generators and seeing dream of having that iWAOW application really taking shape over the lazy weekend ! But I...

Actually monitoring is managed by spring-boot and metrics are generated by Codahale metrics using the https://github.com/ryantenney/metrics-spring project.

Getting Started with JHipster on OS X. Last week I was tasked with developing a quick prototype that used AngularJS for its client and Spring MVC for its server. A colleague developed the same application using Backbone.js and Spring MVC. At first, I considered using my boot-ionic project as a ...

Nice guide on how to setup TLS termination (and passthrough) with HAProxy: http://bit.ly/1pBTvx5 - tip: if you terminate TLS at HAProxy, please use TLS to talk to your origin servers... end-to-end security is important.
