Here’s this week’s recap of the Node.js related blogs we posted last week…
An API gateway externalizes, secures, and manages APIs. It is an intermediary between API consumers (clients) and backend API providers (API servers). Last week we announced that this functionality is now available in the open source Node.js LoopBack framework. Check out Al Tsang’s blog to understand what an API gateway can do for you plus what functionality is planned for future iterations.
In this post, Raymond Feng shows you step-by-step, how to get started with the
loopback-gateway sample application so you can test out the various features of the API Gateway now available in the Loopback framework.
As we announced a few months ago, as part of our sponsorship of the Express project, we’ve been working hard on improving the Express.js documentation. Developer and author Hage Yaapa has done much of the heavy lifting on this project, with guidance from me, StrongLoop’s technical writer, and with invaluable advice and input from Express lead maintainer Doug Wilson.
Here’s an update on where we are with Express documentation and what’s coming next.
