Difference between LoopBack.io and Sails.js
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.
|Highly Extensible, open-source framework.||It is a free, open-source framework.|
|Don’t Support MVC.||It is realtime MVC (Model-View-Controller) web application framework|
|Easy Database Migration.||Easy to set up and use REST APIs.|
|Needs a REST-API, DB, AAA, Swagger, then loopback||Waterline ORM|
|Slow Community.||Great and fast Community.|
