In this article, i am expecting to demonstrate how to customize the spring boot banner. You may have noticed that a banner is being displayed when the application is up and running. You can customize this banner as your wish.
1. Google for the word “ascii art generator”
2. Then you will find an ample of resources to generate ASCII characters. You can use one of the found resources to generate the ASCII characters for your desired text. (I have used the http://patorjk.com for generating ASCII value.)
3. Finally copy the ASCII characters to file called banner.txt and put in the resources directory.
4. Then build and run the application. you will see the newly customized banner when your application is being loaded and run.
The complete source code of the example can be found at GitHub
