Mean Stack Application Development


Businesses lose their grip on online customers with web apps that are irresponsive. Selecting the right app development framework is essential to decide the functionality of an app. An app development framework boosts the speed of a website and also prevents it from the downtime. Some of the popular web app development frameworks are listed below: 

  •  MEAN Stack 
  • Angular Js 
  • React Native
  • Ruby on Rails
  • ASP.Net 
  • Laravel 


In this article, we will discuss the Mean Stack App Development and why it is the most preferred framework for website development. 


What is Mean Stack? 


MEAN Stack is a free and open-source JavaScript framework ideal for creating feature-rich websites and applications. The framework enables developers to create user-friendly, functional websites in a short duration. MEAN stack with a single language, JavaScript, runs on every level of application. It is an end-to-end stack of MongoDB, Express.js, AngularJS, and Node.js. 


Using Mean Stack, developers can create highly scalable web applications that are optimized for cloud deployment. Build-in web servers of MEAN Stack simplify deployment whereas MongoDB manages the data of the website.  MEAN stack is beneficial for websites that are built from scratch. 


Developing and deploying an application to the cloud using the MEAN stack is easy as compared to other app development frameworks. Our MEAN Stack developers create feature-rich web apps that can be deployed to the cloud platform. 


Benefits of MEAN Stack App Development

MEAN, an open-source web stack creates cloud-hosted applications that are scalable, flexible, and extensible. It owns a web server for easy deployment. Its database is scalable on-demand to handle usage spikes. 

MEAN Stack uses JavaScript for web application development which is the favorite programming language of developers. Every part of the MEAN requires only JavaScript, therefore, there is no need to hire additional developers for developing different parts of an application.  Also, the same code can be reused across the entire application, minimalizing reinvention.  

Use Cases

MEAN Stack is an ideal choice for creating cloud-native applications because they are scalable and can manage concurrent users.  Its AngularJS component facilitates the development of single-page applications (SPAs).  

MEAN Components



MongoDB is an open-source, cross-platform, NoSQL document-oriented database program designed for creating cloud applications. In MongoDB, an object-oriented organization is used instead of a relational model. Data is saved in JSON format to initiate an exchange of data between client and server. MongoDB stores the application’s data. Database and application use JavaScript only, therefore, there is no need to translate the object.  

One of the main reasons for MongoDB’s popularity is its impeccable performance and storage capacity. It eliminates the need to reload the table without adding fields to the database. MongoDB manages Big Data without compromising on data access. 


Express is an open-source web application framework for Node.js. It handles interactions between the database and the frontend teams to ensure efficient data transfer to the end-user. Express handles various processes in an app without cluttering it. It offers error handling and templating functionality to accelerate software development. It also prevents the overwriting of variables within the shared namespace. 



AngularJS is Google’s very popular JavaScript framework. MEAN stack uses AngularJS to enable developers to create user-centric apps. The frontend, backend, and database of AngularJS are built on JavaScript that facilitates the smooth flow of information between all parts of the app. 

AngularJS supports web app development for desktop and mobile use. The ready to use templates of AngularJS makes it ideal for creating cloud-native applications. 


Node.js is an open-source JavaScript framework suitable for creating cloud-based applications. It is known for scaling requests on demand. It is the backbone of Mean Stack and is known to increase an app’s web presence. Node.js connects seamlessly with AngualrJS. It includes an integrated web server that facilitates the deployment of application and MongoDB database to the cloud. Node.js is highly scalable and responds quickly to the usage spikes.
