As LoopBack 3 is expected to reach its EOL by the end of this year, we have been working hard to achieve feature parity between LoopBack 3 and LoopBack 4. One feature of LoopBack 3 that we did not have in LoopBack 4 yet was the ability to go directly from only a model definition and model configuration to fully-featured CRUD REST API. Unlike LoopBack 3, LoopBack 4 relied on intermediate repository and controller classes in order to go from a model defintion class to use REST API. One thing that LoopBack 4 strives to do is make common tasks as easy as possible, while allowing advanced composition with loosely-coupled artifacts. So, after completing tasks from the related epic, we are now proud to announce that LoopBack 4 now offers support for going from a model definition to REST API with no custom repository or controller classes.
