MEAN stack has been around in the market for a long time now, with ever increasing popularity within the open source community. Adoption rate of the MEAN stack is growing with the adoption of its underlying technologies. This technical paper will present key guidelines/best practices in creating an application using the MEAN stack components – MONGO, EXPRESSJS, ANGULAR & NODEJS.
Some MEAN stack use cases including but not limited to – frontend development, backend development, mobile app development.
MongoDB has emerged as a database for modern application with an increasing adoption rate. MongoDB is often the go-to solution for a wide variety of use cases. Having said that, the issues associated with it include very tightly coupled systems, highly transactional systems with predeﬁned data models, etc.
This is a very niche cloud service for MongoDB that supplies a basic database to get you started in seconds. It has loads of features including – data lake, stitch, charts, search, analytics, ops manager, connectors, triggers, and a lot more, that enables an “Always On”, “Fully Automated and Elastic” database engine served as DBaaS.
Database development is made easy with the help of tools that are used to browse and manipulate data within. Mongo Compass is the easiest way to explore and manipulate data. Key features include – Schema visualization, Server Performance, Geospatial data visualization, and Visual Explain charts. With all these features built in, Mongo Compass is the only tool that you will need to work on your document data.
A fast, unopinionated, minimalist web framework for Node.js. The statement holds true from every feature’s perspective. It is a minimalistic library that helps to create backend applications efﬁciently.
While creating backend applications, below are some of the guidelines that should be followed if we want to achieve a collaborative development working environment.
- Conﬁg: to keep the conﬁguration of the entire application. To be used only for non-sensitive conﬁgurations
- Controllers: to keep all your routes hierarchy and conﬁguration
- Helpers: To be used only for utility functions across your apps
- Middleware: placeholder for your application’s middleware
- Model: the place where the data layer is managed
