MERN Vs MEAN
Nowadays, the majority of websites are built with widgets for quick loading, increased interaction, and enhanced mobile-responsiveness. Today, the developers use a ‘stack’ of technologies to provide you with a seamless website or application.
On the business side, developers are also under significant pressure to develop DevOps methodologies to deliver new applications rapidly while rolling out enhancements and updates regularly. But, it doesn’t stop here as there is a continuous requirement to ensure high availability simultaneously. As a result, it can be inferred that the evolution of web development has been accelerated by the demands of the end-users.
There are some used by developers, but the dominant ones are:
-MEAN (MongoDB, ExpressJS, AngularJS, NodeJS)
-MERN (MongoDB, ExpressJS, ReactJS, NodeJS)
You don’t know what a stack is or their different types? Don’t worry! We got you! Apart from discussing MEAN stack vs MERN stack in this blog, we will be talking about the basics too.
THE MEAN VS MERN STACK- How To Make The Right Choice?
The basic difference between Mean Stack and Mern Stack is React.js and Angular.js. Most of the developers prefer to React over Angular today. The selection of the MEAN/MERN stack depends upon the development and functional requirement of the system to be developed. If you have several developers and are going full-on enterprise product, you will go Angular. For example, an enterprise-level project like LinkedIn preferred MEAN stack. The major reason behind this is to maintain the architecture.
Although the MERN stack makes UI rendering considerably simpler, it is just a library. It just provides the means to make rendering easy. On the contrary, Angular provides a well-organized framework to support MVC architecture or rather MVW (Model-View-Whatever) architecture where the database and UI code are isolated with an intermediate layer. This helps in managing the code easily and making upgrading of code an easy task. Thus, when it comes to adding features to the application, React involves additional configurations while Angular is well organized to make it a plug and play job. So when it comes to Enterprise-level architecture.
