StrongLoop began in 2013 offering an open-source enterprise version of Node.js. Acquired by IBM in 2015, the StrongLoop team continues to build LoopBack, the open-source Node.js API Framework. IBM continues to contribute and support the StrongLoop community through these projects that provide key technologies for the API economy:

Highly-extensible, open-source Node.js framework ideal for APIs.
Developer-focused, extensible Node.js gateway framework.

Vendor-neutral, open, portable API description based on the Swagger specification.
