loopback-discovery

loopback-discovery is a command prompt discovery script for the LoopBack framework.

Installation

npm install -g loopback-discovery

Basic use

The script can discover models from data sources defined on a StrongLoop application from command line. This is mainly for overcoming missing support for 'non-supported' connectors in StrongLoop's Arc GUI interface.

  • To run model discovery for sports data source inside a StrongLoop application available in current folder.
$ loopback-discovery

With this new models from sports data source will be discovered, the one that already exists are being skipped. Once discovered the user gets to select the ones that are going to be publicly exposed through the REST interface.

  • To run model discovery for sports data source inside a StrongLoop application available in /opt/strongloop/sports.
$ loopback-discovery -d sports /opt/strongloop/sports
  • To run model discovery for sports data source inside a StrongLoop application available in /opt/strongloop/sports while overwriting existing model definition.
$ loopback-discovery -o -d sports /opt/strongloop/sports
  • By default the schema used in connection connection definition is used for discovery, however some loopback connectors can support additional discovery options:
    • all: to use all owners/schemas for discovery use -a command option
    • views: to include views in discovery use -v command option
$ loopback-discovery -a -v -d sports /opt/strongloop/sports

For information on configuring the connector in a LoopBack application, please refer to LoopBack documentation.
