LoopBack is an open-source Node.js framework for building APIs and connecting them with backend data sources, including databases. It allows developers to create dynamic end-to-end RESTful APIs with little or no code by auto-generating models from existing schemas or dynamically modifying models at runtime. LoopBack also provides tools to expose services, build real-time APIs using WebSockets and establish security protocols such as role-based access control (RBAC). Built on top of Express web application framework, LoopBack simplifies the process of building complex applications through its extensibility and out-of-the-box support for various database connectors. It is maintained by StrongLoop-contributed library at IBM.
