Why Give MEAN Stack Next Web/Mobile App Development?

As a web or mobile app developer, how many times have you been faced with this question – which technology should I adopt for the next project? Not so long time ago, web development meant WordPress. This has evolved ever since. Today, you have multiple technologies, each supporting a different nature of development. For example, Angular JS is particularly suitable for single page application development. Similarly, there are other frameworks that are best suited for small applications.

As a web or mobile app developer, how many times have you been faced with this question – which technology should I adopt for the next project? Not so long time ago, web development meant Node.Js Development. This has evolved ever since. Today, you have multiple technologies, each supporting a different nature of development. For example, Angular JS is particularly suitable for single page application development. Similarly, there are other frameworks that are best suited for small applications.

Today, the developer tends to combine multiple technologies in order to come out with an extensive and enhanced web application that is not just user-centric, but also experiential. A web stack named LAMP was used to drive powerful and performance-oriented web applications. Today, we have the MEAN stack which is a powerful combination of MongoDB, Express.js, Angular.js, and Node.js. Interestingly, each of these technologies comes with several benefits, which in turn makes your website top-notch.

Those who thought LAMP was befitting their purposes are slowly shifting towards MEAN. Why is this happening? MEAN as against the powerful LAMP offers flexibility and simplicity. Let’s identify the advantage of using these javascript technologies. MongoDB offers flexible layers for data storage, and Node.js harnesses the potential of strong networks to keep your server running at all hours.

Express.js is known to standardize the website development and Angular.js is known to provide interactivity to the web applications. Together, they give out scalable and highly robust web applications best suited for your enterprise needs.

If you are still not convinced, we will take you through why you should be using MEAN stack for your next web development project.

One language:

All the technologies in MEAN stack are JavaScript languages. In LAMP, you had to code your application in PHP for the server-side, while the client side was coded using JavaScript, and the query was sent using MySQL. This is not the case with MEAN stack. MongoDB is the binary version of JSON, which is again JavaScript. Basically, you have the same scripting language on both the client and the server side.

Cost-effective:

If your developer knows JavaScript, they can easily code for server side and client side using MEAN stack. This means you save a lot of money hiring developers. A single developer/team should do your job for MEAN stack development. In fact, MEAN stack has created a new opportunity for the full-stack web application developer

The advantage of Node.js:

MEAN stack introduces you to Node.js, which is, in fact, a highly scalable and robust framework. It is the runtime environment. It works with a non-blocking input and output, which means any new query that comes its way, is handled efficiently. In the traditional environment, the client had to send a request for the query to be generated. With Node js development services, you can automatically send in the data, before the client requests for it.

The MongoDB Advantage:

MongoDB is effective when you need to handle a large amount of data. This works in a way akin to OOPs, which makes handling easy and efficient

Open-source:

All the technologies in MEAN stack are open-source. This means you can get the code to these technologies, and customize the core to meet your individual needs. The technologies are free, which means you don’t need to pay to own these technologies

Good Community Support:

All the technologies in the MEAN stack are supported by a community which can bail you out of any situation. They are developers, experts and even people who have worked on the technology. You can always ask them in case you are stuck somewhere

A lot of companies have adopted the MEAN stack, and have success stories to share. PayPal is one of them, which has adopted the MEAN stack and has definitely attained success through the web application.
