hi_score 1.4 released
The full life-cycle starter project for SPAs just got a lot better - again
We just released Version 1.4.x which is a big ugrade from 1.3.x, which in turn was a major upgrade from 1.2.x. Read on for more details.
hi_score is a full-lifecycle starter project for web application development. It embodies good practice from over 20 years of experience for every lifecycle stage.
hi_score embraces the feature-module (or “web component”) design pattern, so it should work well with React or Vue.js. Please do swap assets and libraries as required - that’s the point.

- Update virtual appliance as shown in the top image. Installing a reliable development environment doesn’t get much easier.
