We are discussing how to add HTTP/2 support to LoopBack. Thankfully the HTTP/1 compatibility API provided by Node.js removes most of the concerns about different communication model. Unfortunately TypeScript and `@types/node` makes it quite difficult to get everything right 😒
My first LoopBack screencast 🎥 shows how to upgrade datasource files in your LB4 project from the old JSON-based configuration to the new pure-TypeScript style. Enjoy! 👀
Shell completion for LoopBack4 CLI tool `lb4` is coming in the next release! 🎉
In theory, Rust is a great way how to write low-level platform-independent apps in a high-level language with a growing universe of packages to use. In practice, many packages depend on C-based libraries like OpenSSL that are difficult to build on Windows and MUSL, thus you end up fiddling with legacy build tools anyways 🤦♂️
"The History of the URL" - a very detailed overview of how URL came to existence and evolved over year. Great long read!
V nadcházejícím rouškovém létě nabývá slovní spojení "nahoře bez" podstatně jiného významu :)

If your LoopBack 3 project uses an extension that's not on my list and you would like to migrate the extension to LoopBack 4, then please leave us a comment in the GitHub issue. Thanks!
In the last few days, I reviewed more than a dozen LoopBack 3 extensions built by our amazing community and compiled a list of common techniques used by extensions.
This is the first step on our journey write a LB4 Migration Guide for LB3 extension devs.
Wrote my first @rustlang code 💪
By switching from git-prompt  to https://starship.rs, I reduced the time to compute my Bash prompt string from ~90ms down to ~35ms. Small improvements matter!
I wrote down few thoughts on implementing tenant isolation in LoopBack 4: https://github.com/strongloop/loopback-next/issues/5056 Please upvote 👍 the issue if you need this kind of multi-tenancy for your LoopBack 4 project. It will help us to prioritize which features to work on first.
ECMAScript 2020: the final feature set 💪 I am looking forward to see these features available in Node.js out of the box. Maybe 14.0 LTS?
Privacy & decentralisation, sustainable open-source, distributed & remote-first. Node.js, LoopBack.io and IBM.
Server run by the main developers of the project It is not focused on any particular niche interest - everyone is welcome as long as you follow our code of conduct!
