An opinionated scaffolding library that jump-starts Java projects with an API-first design, secure defaults, and minimal dependencies. Alpine came about due to many commonalities between several of my personal and professional projects.

Alpine provides the basis for quickly developing a 'Thin Server Architecture'. This type of architecture shifts the role of webapps to being API providers with little or no responsibility for server-side HTML rendering. This type of architecture is perfect for client-side rendered webapps that rely heavily on JSON, for Single Page Applications (SPA), and to power back-ends that drive mobile applications.
