What is MEAN Stack?

‘MEAN’ stands for MongoDB, Express.js, Angular, and Node.js.

  • MongoDB is a NoSQL database to store data as Jsonfiles in backed

  • Express is a backend web application that runs on top of node js

  • Angular front-end framework used to run JavaScript in the client's browser

A mean stack is defined as a collection of Javascript technologies that assist in building complex websites or web apps and in building robust websites and applications. MEAN Stack is an open-source JavaScript framework with an extensive suite of built-in testing tools.

MongoDB is a NoSQL database to store data as Jsonfiles in backed

Express is a backend web application that runs on top of node js

React is a javascript front-end library for UI development

MERN is used for developing web apps by making use of its libraries, database, framework MERN Stack is a common alternative to MEAN Stack, where traditional Angular.js is replaced by React.js, which progresses in development faster, more scalable and easier. The only difference is that the mean uses Angular tools for building frontend whereas mernstack uses react js, Tech giants like Instagram, Whatsapp and Netflix mobile apps are built using MERN Stack.

Concluding with …..

MEAN and MERN are reliable frameworks in the market and the growth of both stacks is insane. Both have become an integral part of Full Stack Development.
