The OWA Generator is a tool that uses Yeoman to scaffold an OpenMRS Open Web App. The goal of this project is to make it as easy as possible for a developer with some knowledge of EHRs and JavaScript to build an app on top of the OpenMRS platform. It should be very easy to get a development and test environment set up and help should be easy to access and understand.
