BlueOak FE pre-integrates high-quality open source components and automates common tasks to simplify and accelerate development. With greater consistency and fewer bugs, developers can focus efforts on functions that deliver increased busines value.

BlueOak FE integrates open source components, such as AngularJS 1.x, Foundation for Sites, Cordova, Gulp, Browsersync, Swagger/OpenAPI, with a best-of-breed build system to reduce the amount of time spent on the table stakes of app development. Components provide higher level UI tasks, such as Googe maps and card.io, and utilizing BlueOak DX along with FE provides a common design language across your teams resulting in greater efficiencies in your UI development.

BlueOak Server, built on Swagger/Open API, combines the best Node.js libraries into a single tool for building RESTful APIs. It uses Express under the covers and adds many additional features:

  • Easy configuration
  • Clustering
  • Logging
  • Dependency Injection

Using Swagger API to drive runtime behavior, BlueOak Server loads your Swagger API spec, connects the paths it defines to your implementation code, exposes that API to the network and validates that every request is well-formed per your spec. BlueOak Server will even generate documentation using swagger-ui.
