Realistic global neutron star models require numerical approach. In this talk, I shall briefly motivate and recall the general-relativistic framework for the description of rotating compact stars and show how global observable quantities can be computed unambiguously. Then, I will present some recent results on the building of more detailed physical models, including realistic microphysics, following three directions. First, I shall describe the inclusion of magnetic field and its effects on both, global equilibrium and equation of state, second I will briefly sketch how one can use temperature-dependent approach in stationary models, and finally I will discuss superfluid (two-fluid) models in an attempt to model glitch phenomena.
