LoopBack Sample Application
This Cloud 9 Workspace contains several StrongLoop products including slc (CLI), LoopBack (API Server) and the StrongOps agent (DevOps and Performance Monitoring) for you to try in the cloud (Cloud 9, to be exact) before downloading and installing them on your own.
Before we really get into the StrongLoop Suite, take a minute to familiarize yourself with the Cloud 9 IDE.
Remember that friendly, green "Run" button in the main menu? Go ahead and give 'er a click. The LoopBack Sample App should begin running, and the bottom Output tab should become visible. If not, select Output in the bottom pane and take note of a few things:
Your code is running at ''.Important: use 'process.env.PORT' as the port and 'process.env.IP' as the host in your scripts!Using the memory connector.To specify another connector:DB=oracle node app
The first is that the application has run successfully. If that's no the case (for example, if the word Exception and a big, scary stack trace have been produced, then something's wrong!), then please reach out and we'll gladly give you a hand.
Second, click the blue link in that first message. If the right browser tab was hidden, it'll reveal itself ... along with the home page of the SLS Sample.
Third, it's MUCH better if you view the home page of the sample application in a browser on your local machine. To do so, click the detach icon on the browser pane, next to the close icon. This will open a new browser tab or window on your local browser with the home page.
Lastly, note the URL of your sample app in the browser pane. It's the same URL that should be displayed in the Output tab after "Your code is running at...".
Now that you have the Sample App running, embiggen (and, yes, that's a word) the browser tab on the right or on your local browser and take a peek. The Next Steps are inside!
