The process of web development involves the usage of various technologies. Prominent among them are web servers, libraries, front-end frameworks and database systems. These days, developers employ the strategy of using a combination of such tools and technologies to facilitate a faster and more effective web development process. For instance, LAMP (software bundle), which is an acronym for Linux (operating system), Apache (web server), MySQL (database management system) and PHP, PERL or Python (server-side scripting language). LAMP is still widely used for various processes, such as security testing, application development and more.

Similarly, there is a new technology stack, which is becoming popular amongst developers for its potential resourcefulness in web development. It is the MEAN stack. So, what is MEAN stack and why has it come in to the limelight?

MEAN is an acronym, which stands for Mongo DB (database system), Express (back-end web framework), Angular.js (front-end framework) and Node.js (back-end runtime environment). These technologies were developed at different points of time. But, today they are grouped together to form the MEAN stack and the reason is pretty clear. It is JavaScript that binds them together. JavaScript is a dynamic programming language for client-side and server-side web application development.

Today, there are a lot of popular websites and web applications which are running on MEAN stack. Ulbora is a content management system and blog platform built using MEAN stack. Another is Trakit.me, a personal…
