You may have heard the term MEAN Stack in web development. I will explain where this term comes from, and what are the advantages of creating web applications using the MEAN Stack. MEAN Stack stands for MongoDB, Express.js, Angular and Node.js. Let’s first talk about the different parts that make up a MEAN Stack application, describe why it’s a good idea to create web applications by using it.
MongoDB is a NoSQL database. This is the database of choice for developers building MEAN applications. The data that’s stored in a MongoDB database is in JSON format. This makes it an excellent candidate for the database in this type of applications.
Express.js is one of the most popular frameworks, used with Node.js, for creating web applications. It allows developers to easily respond to HTTP user requests.
MEAN Stack applications use MongoDB, Express.js, Angular and Node.js for developing web applications. It is a great way for web developers to use the same language across all the parts of the web application. In some cases, developers can replace Angular with Rect. In which case, you would refer to it as the MERN Stack. If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment here, or use the contact page.
