I have been spending some time with JHipster. I like it.
Java developers looking to adopt AngularJS should check consider JHipster as a great way to get started.
Below is a snapshot of the Google Trend chart showing JHipster's impact.
If you have not heard of AngularJS, consider the following chart that shows how even JHipster's spike pales in comparison to the wave of interest in AngularJS. JHipster is in blue.
Finally, consider how both of the above spikes seem small compared to Java's relatively steady and huge mindshare. I think these charts offer some clues as to where things are headed in Java-land.
