StrongLoop is the main contributing organization for Loopback, and it was purchased by IBM. Now many people fear quality decline or license change is in the future.

Loopback and Sails implement API generation natively, with lots of features. TypeORM integrates Express route / endpoint / controller generation via an extension. Loopback implements complex database discovery with SQL and NoSQL stores.
