The elements of the MEAN Stack are as follows:
MongoDB - A schemaless NoSQL database system. It stores data in binary JSON format which makes it easy to transfer data between client and server. MongoDB is build for saving non-relational data. MongoDB is fast, inexpensive and flexible, and also suited for simple apps.
AngularJS - It offers some brilliant features such as two-way data binding. It is basically used for fast and top-notch front end development. The structure is defined in HTML and extended by AngularJS directives. It also helps reduce complications but at the cost of lower control.
