LoopBack - 2020 Goals and Focus

by Diana Lau , Raymond Feng , Miroslav Bajtoš - Feb 26, 2020

2019 was surely an exciting and rewarding year for LoopBack. We received the “Best in API Middleware” award from API World, our LB4 downloads on npmjs.com increased more than double compared to the year before. Moreover, we are thrilled to learn that many of you had deployed LoopBack 4 applications in production! In case you missed our 2019 review, make sure you check it out. As 2020 begins, we would like to share with you our high-level goals for this year. Things might change or shift throughout the year, but here is our plan.


LoopBack 3 has entered Maintenance LTS

by Miroslav Bajtoš - Feb 19, 2020

Almost a year ago, we announced Extended Long Term Support for LoopBack 3, extending Active LTS to the end of November 2019. As the saying goes, all good things must come to an end, and so LoopBack version 3 has entered Maintenance LTS in December 2019.

It’s a Leap Year this year, and we continue to make leaps in LoopBack 4.

With New Year’s resolutions in mind, we quickly got started on several items.

Happy New Year! The number of LoopBack 4 downloads in 2019 increased more than double than that in 2018. Thank you for your continuous support in using and contributing to LoopBack. We cannot do this alone and we really appreciate all the contributions from the community. In December, we were happy to have 3 community members join us as maintainers: @derdeka, dougal83 and achrinza!

As year 2020 commences, let us summarize our development activities in the last quarter of 2019.
