LoopBack Framework

LoopBack Framework

The StrongLoop API Platform features the popular open source LoopBack framework. LoopBack enables you to quickly compose scalable APIs, runs on top of the Express web framework and conforms to the Swagger 2.0 specification.



Get Productive Fast

LoopBack lets developers focus on business logic and user experience by making it easy to design, test and auto-generate the code for their APIs.


LoopBack is a mature framework that makes it easy to start implementing API design best practices that conform to popular specifications.

Data Integration Made Easy

LoopBack makes it easy to connect to new and legacy data in Oracle, SQL Server, MongoDB and MySQL, plus handle complex relationship mapping between them with robust ORM features.


LoopBack is open source and extensible by design. Take advantage of over 100 StrongLoop supported npm modules compatible with LoopBack or integrate your own modules to increase the framework’s feature set.
