  • We use Spring Roo for SnapHop!

    I just wanted to let the community know that we are using Spring Roo for our mobile marketing startup SnapHop:

    Its unofficial launched

    Ben Alex and gang thank you so much for making Roo awesome!

    I'm loving the *DataOnDemand aspects. Very very useful.

    Advance apologies for the shameless plug but I know I am at least always interested in who is using Roo.
    I'll write a blog post shortly on the subject if folks are interested.

    Very, very interesting.

    You're using JQuery in a terrific look and feel.

    Was it hard to program the view?

      Thanks @jbbarquero

      I would say the one thing that I don't like about Spring Roo is the View generation. My business partner I don't find it very useful.
      For look and feel I just recommend buying by a theme from Themeforest.

          I question your suggestion to use a premade "theme" for a business, instead of a focused design for target customers. I wouldn't invest in a company with such a practice.

            I really like your initiative of using premade themes like Themeforest for Spring Roo...
            In fact another member suggested worldpress themes too.

            Last but no least; jQuery-based libraries and components -like jQuery UI, jQuery Mobile, wijmo, kendo and jqGrid- should be included as well.

            I already did some in-roads work in this regard and they fit very-very-very well with Spring Roo Web MVC.

            Some links about it at and

            BTW, congrats for your new app!.

            Thank you

              MiB - is this not just an indication that they aren't ready for investment yet? Presumabely they're trying to get traction and will replace the design with a focused one if they achieve some kind of metric?
