From zero to hero: rapid APIs with Loopback

LoopBack is a Node.js API framework that enables you to create APIs quickly that interact with backend resources like databases and services.

LoopBack 4, the next generation of LoopBack, includes:

  • A brand new core rewritten in TypeScript that makes this framework simpler to use and easier to extend than ever
  • Support for OpenAPI for comprehensive bottom-up and top-down REST API experience
  • Enablement of instant GraphQL endpoints from REST APIs

In this workshop, you will work through building an API server, including:

  • Scaffold a LoopBack 4 application
  • Create the data models
  • Define the datasource where the data is stored
  • Add a repository to bind the model and datasource
  • Add a controller to expose REST APIs
