LoopBack.io: A LoopBack.io is a highly extensible, open-source Node.js, and TypeScript framework for building APIs and microservices that enables us to perform the following.

  • Create dynamic end-to-end REST APIs with little or no coding at all.
  • Access data from database servers like MySQL, MongoDB, and other REST APIs.

The Loopback.io comes into play for a huge Enterprise application where we need to work on some complex data models. The loopback address is the preferred method to identify, if the device is online, and any interface address can be used to do it.

Sails.js: The Sails.js is an open-source, free, realtime Model-View-Controller web application framework. This framework is developed on top of the Node.js environment. It is also designed to build custom, enterprise-grade web applications, and APIs.

Emulating the Model View Controller architecture of other frameworks, it reduces the burden while switching between different frameworks or languages. It enables the developers to rapidly assemble REST APIs, single-page apps, etc. The MVC frameworks are like Ruby on Rails, and since it is a flawless JavaScript solution it underpins varied front-end technologies and multiple databases concurrently.
