Wim's Taming Thymeleaf book is a must-read for everyone using Thymeleaf together with Spring Boot.
I really enjoyed building the nice-looking and feature-rich sample application while reading the book. Along the way, you'll learn how to master internationalization, security, entity updates, error handling, validation, and much more.
On top of this, Wim reveals so many hidden gems of Spring's excellent Thymeleaf integration that your productivity with this tech stack will significantly increase.
In the end, you'll have a blueprint for a state-of-the-art Thymeleaf and Spring Boot application. I'm actively using it as my go-to reference whenever I try to solve X with Thymeleaf and Spring Boot. You won't find such great explanations and examples on Stack Overflow.
Starting out simple the author shows how to structure your code and shows common pitfalls. You learn how to test your application from back to front with unit- integration and end-2-end tests.
Great writing - even form validation was engaging. Excellent chapter structure and size and (imho) solid combination of technologies. I wish I had it when starting with Spring Boot, alone for the smooth introduction of Spring Security, Testcontainers and Spring Data.
It also offers quite a lot of knowledge bits one picks up with time, like using value classes for IDs, in a very well-rounded package. To put it short: A lot of value for the money! 🙌
If you use Spring Boot in combination with Thymeleaf, this book is perfect to understand the basic concepts as well as to learn best practices and tips for effective usage. Wim writes very practical, precise and compact and with really helpful code examples. The book helped me tremendously to set up and design a new Spring Boot & Thymeleaf project after a long break from the Java world.
