LoopBack is a highly-extensible, open-source Node.js framework that enables you to:

  • Create dynamic end-to-end REST APIs with little or no coding.
  • Access data from major relational databases, MongoDB, SOAP and REST APIs.
  • Incorporate model relationships and access controls for complex APIs.
  • Separable components for file storage, third-party login, and OAuth 2.0.
  • Easily create client apps using Android, iOS, and JavaScript SDKs.
  • Run your application on-premises or in the cloud.
