Understanding MEAN Web Development.
Understanding MEAN Web Development
M – MongoDB: The Database
E – Express: The Web Framework
Considered a light and flexible web application framework for Node.js. This framework features a robust set of features for both web and mobile applications. Due to its light weight and thin layer of fundamental web application features, performance is not hindered.
A – AngularJS: The Frontend Framework
A structural framework used to develop dynamic web/ mobile applications. It extends HTML by the use of data binding and dependency injection that will save the developer time by eliminating code that you may have to write. All of the action occurs in the browser so it makes it ideal to work alongside any server based technology.
N – Node.js: The Server Platform
All four technologies are basically meant for each other. They all use the same language. Supports the MVC (Model-View-Controller) design pattern. Most importantly: open source!
