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 🤦♂️

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?
The 2020 Call for Code Global Challenge has expanded its focus to tackle the effects of COVID-19 and made these tools available for developers to help with:
