One of LoopBack’s core features is the ability to lock down access to your APIs and define exactly who can do what with your data. LoopBack provides multiple tools to make this easy, but it’s helpful to see a real (although simple) application demonstrating the complete process of securing your APIs. In this post I’ll demonstrate how […]

For example, one cool way to use a LoopBack REST-based API is to power client-side charting for your web site. In this post I’ll demonstrate a simple LoopBack API and how I built charts with it […]
