Overview

A convention-based bootstrapper for LoopBack applications.

For full documentation, see the official StrongLoop documentation: Defining boot scripts and Creating a LoopBack application.

The loopback-boot module initializes (bootstraps) a LoopBack application. Specifically, it:

  • Configures data-sources.
  • Defines custom models
  • Configures models and attaches models to data-sources.
  • Configures application settings
  • Runs additional boot scripts, so you can put custom setup code in multiple small files instead of in the main application file.

For more information, see Defining boot scripts.

Version notes

The version range 1.x is backwards compatible with app.boot provided by LoopBack 1.x versions and the project layout scaffolded by slc lb project up to slc version 2.5.
