Use the LoopBack CLI tool,
lb to create and scaffold applications. Scaffolding simply means generating the basic code for your application. You can then extend and modify the code as desired for your specific needs.
The command-line tools provide an Application generator to create a new LoopBack application and a number of sub-generators to scaffold an application, as described in the following table. The commands are listed roughly in the order that you would use them.
Warning: API Connect tools (
apic and the API Designer) do not currently support LoopBack 3.0; use the LoopBack CLI tool instead.
