Why MEAN stack?

Go back to Tutorial

MEAN is a collection of various javascript based technologies – Angular, NodeJS, etc. MEAN programming is written in one language, it allows unique server-side and client-side execution environments.

You might have heard about LAMP/WAMP stack development, where a server-side application written in PHP, database queries in MySQL data using SQL and client-side front-end in HTML using Javascript in your client side. Now, imagine what if you just have to focus on one language? MEAN lets you focus on one programming language throughout your development journey.

When to use MEAN?

While the MEAN stack isn’t perfect for every application, there are many uses where it excels. It’s a strong choice for developing cloud-native applications because of its scalability and its ability to manage concurrent users. The AngularJS front-end framework also makes it ideal for developing single-page applications (SPAs) that serve all information and functionality on a single page. Here are a few examples for using MEAN:

  • Calendars
  • Expense tracking
  • News aggregation sites
  • Mapping and location finding
