Welcome to the first “In the Loop” of 2020! Join us as we review recent news, updates or opinions for Node.js, OpenAPI Spec, Microgateway, LoopBack and other open source solutions. We list them in no particular order, and any opinions expressed in the linked posts do not necessarily reflect those of the StrongLoop or IBM team.
Happy New Year! Is the snow dancing outside of your window or is the sunshine bringing warmth and glow to the grass around you? No matter where you are, the LoopBack team is thankful for you being with us through 2019! It means a lot to us that you choose LoopBack for your applications and projects.
Even though this past December was a short month due to the holidays, the list of the accomplished tasks is not short! Check out the sections below for the progress we made in each area:
- From Model Definition to REST API: build a LB4 app with just models!
- Inclusion of Related Models: enable custom scope for inclusion.
- Authentication: new added user profile factory and StrategyAdapter.
- @loopback/context Improvement: invoke interceptors based on their callers.
- Application Life Cycle: application states and the shutdown hooks.
- OpenAPI Enhancer Service: contribute OpenAPI spec pieces from extensions.
- Improving Juggler and Connectors: new property settings.
- New ESLint Rules: applied new
- Documentation Improvements
As 2019 draws to a close, we’re continuing our annual tradition of celebrating the hard work that the LoopBack team achieved in the past year. As you might expect, developing LoopBack 4 was the main focus, with events, updates and “how to” content adding flavour to the mix. That focus has resulted in a lot of improvements and features for the framework, as well as quality interaction with the LoopBack community.
Grab your seasonal beverage of choice, whether hot or cold, and read on for a trip down 2019 memory lane!
Welcome back to “In the Loop”, in which we list recent news, updates or opinions for Node.js, OpenAPI Spec, Microgateway, LoopBack and other open source solutions. We list them in no particular order, and any opinions expressed in the linked posts do not necessarily reflect those of the StrongLoop or IBM team.
The LoopBack team greeted November with the CASCONxEVOKE conference in Toronto. CASCONxEVOKE is one of Canada’s largest combined academic, research and developer conferences. As its speakers and attendees, we had a booth with posters to advocate LoopBack, and also delivered a workshop about developing extensible LoopBack applications. You can check this blog for more details.
For Q4 achievements, we finished 3 epics this month: Inclusion of related models, Deployment guide in a cloud native environment and Support partitioned database in Cloudant connector, and significantly progressed in the Migration, Authentication & Authorization epics.
