Express.js was founded by a man named TJ Holowaychuk. According to the Express.js’s GitHub repository, its first releasing date was on the 22nd of May in 2010 and the version was 0.12. Later on, in June of 2014 there were now the rights to manage the project that had been acquire by StrongLoop.
StrongLoop was the later on obtained by IBM in the September of 2015 and later in January of 2016, IBM announced that it would be placing Express.js under the level of Node.js Foundations incubator. So, trying to understand what it is, Express.js and sometimes simply known as Express, is a web applications framework specifically for Node.js that was released as a free and an open source software under the license of MIT.
It is designed for the creation and development of web-based applications and APIs. It has also been called the De facto standard framework for Node.js Apart from this the original author, TJ Holowaychuk described the server as more of Sinatra-inspired which means that it is very minimal and having many of the features available as plugins.
Express is also the main end component of the MEAN stack along with the MongoDB software and the AngularJS framework.
Loopback or loop-back is known as the routing of many different electronic signals different digital data lines or flows of items back to their origin without the intentional processing or modifying. This is basically a way of testing the communications structure.
Since there are many existing applications, it may be a communication channel having only a single endpoint for communication. Any message that is transmitted from such a channel is then swiftly and only obtained by the same channel.
In the field of telecommunications, loopback specifically does not require the assistance of any personnel at the terminal that is served.
