I use LoopBack because it is: * It is truly and Unbelievably Extensible * it is default integrated with OpenAPI (Swagger) Spec Driven REST API * I write lesser codes, because most of the user stories have been covered using the code generation * It's documentation is more compact and well detailed than ExpressJS * It is very easy to learn, hence you can build a basic Rest API App in minutes * It has built in NPM packages required to build my Rest API which saves me time on installation and configuration * The Datasource/Service/Controller concept is just Brilliant (that's mostly all you need to get your app speaking with an External API services) * The support for SOAP and Rest API services is amazing!

This is a great thanks for sharing. Question about the SOAP support, have you implemented it or just REST?

I have only implemented it for the Rest services. But I did read through the SOAP API Datasource/Service implementation and it seems pretty much structured too. More structured than some of the ExpressJS implementations that I've seen.
