MEAN Stack Components
Here are the technologies that make up MEAN stack:
- MongoDB is a cross-platform document database which provides both structure and flexibility to help you organize your data in whichever way makes sense for your business. MongoDB stores collections of documents, rather than rows within tables like relational databases do. Documents can contain more complex types such as arrays, dates or geospatial information
- ExpressJS is an open source web application framework built on Node.js with some added features including support for routing URL requests, formatting responses via templates (e.g., Mustache) and managing asynchronous tasks (async/await). It’s designed not only around the idea of “Express middleware” but also REST API design principles.
