ARGUMENTS

Provide the application name as an optional argument.  The tool will create a directory of that name to contain the application.

INTERACTIVE PROMPTS

The generator will prompt you for:

  • Name of the application, that defaults to the directory name you previously entered.

The tool creates the standard LoopBack application structure.  See Project layout reference for details.
