What is MEAN?
MEAN (Mongo, Express, Angular, Node) is a boilerplate that provides a nice starting point for MongoDB, Node.js, Express, and AngularJS based applications. It is designed to give you a quick and organized way to start developing MEAN based web apps with useful modules like Mongoose and Passport pre-bundled and configured.
Welcome to the mean stack
MEAN is a set of Open Source components that together, provide an end-to-end framework for building dynamic web applications; starting from the top (code running in the browser) to the bottom (database). The Stack is made up of:
- Express (sometimes referred to as Express.js): Back-end web application framework running on top of Node.js
git clone https://github.com/linnovate/mean cd mean cp .env.example .env yarn yarn start (for development)
git clone https://github.com/linnovate/mean cd mean cp .env.example .env docker-compose up -d
- The MEAN name was coined by Valeri Karpov.
- Initial concept and development was done by Amos Haviv and sponsered by Linnovate.
- Inspired by the great work of Madhusudhan Srinivasa.
