MEAN and MERN stacks – A glimpse
The Emergence of ‘Stacks’
Back in the times when the internet was evolving, companies, big or small, fixated their focus on developing websites to give their businesses a digital identity. There was a huge demand of availing digital service and gaining popularity on the internet.
For this reason, the developers used the combination of HTML, CSS, and JS to structure, style, and provide functionality to the website.
With increasing popularity and intensive competition, the need to switch to a better and robust implementation of website emerged. That’s when some geniuses stepped in and introduced more comprehensive development stacks, most popular of which are called MEAN and MERN stack.
The term ‘stack’ was first put forward during the launch of the LAMP stack, which was the first open-source full-stack development bundle constituting the capabilities of Linux OS, Apache Server, MySQL DB, and PHP programming language.
Succeeding the LAMP stack, came into existence the MEAN and MERN stacks.
What are MEAN and MERN?
Which one’s better? The MEAN or the MERN?
Taking into account the mobile application development, using the MEAN approach includes availing the strong capabilities of Ionic framework whereas implementation of MERN is best benefited by the use of React Native.
The selection of MEAN/MERN stack wholly depends upon the development and functional requirement of the system to be developed. Choosing either would provide you with a proficient software according to their capabilities.
