Building Enterprise APIs with StrongLoop Support for Swagger 2.0

Building Enterprise APIs with StrongLoop Support for Swagger 2.0

The Swagger 2.0 specification was officially released today and at StrongLoop we are excited to announce that LoopBack is the first Node.js framework to support Swagger 2.0. Using LoopBack you can now take a Swagger 1.2 or 2.0 specification and automatically scaffold a Node-powered REST API. This should be especially useful for any developer wanting to easily describe their APIs using the leading enterprise standard for API specification and implement them in Node.js. Developers now have the ultimate flexibility in starting from a “bottoms up” approach – building APIs from existing data sources or a “top down” approach – starting with the leading enterprise API specification and scaffolding up a backend of generated models.
