Introduction to the MEAN Stack

via Introduction to the MEAN Stack.

It was a long time ago since the acronym LAMP (Linux Apache MySql PHP) was created. Today another very common stack is the MEAN stack. Probably not all of you know what that the acronym “MEAN” stands for, so let’s start with the basic. MEAN stands for MongoDB, Express, AngularJS and Node.js. It deals with a full stack JavaScript solution for building websites and web applications. From the database to the back-end code and the front-end code, everything is written using JavaScript. In case you aren’t familiar with the technologies used by the MEAN stack, you can find a short introduction about these technologies in the following section.

You can find the whole source code for this article on GitHub. Feel free to fork it and play around with it.

PHP vs NodeJS: The REAL statistics

via PHP vs node.js: The REAL statistics | Web Code Geeks.

When it comes to web programming, I’ve always coded in ASP.NET or the LAMP technologies for most part of my life.

Now, the new buzz in the city is node.js.

It is a light-weight platform that runs javascript code on server-side and is said to improve performance by using async I/O.

Build a real-time polls application with Node.js, Express, AngularJS, and MongoDB

Build a real-time polls application with Node.js, Express, AngularJS, and MongoDB

Recently while lecturing on HTML5 to a large group of students, I wanted to poll them and display their voting results, updating in real-time. I decided to quickly build a polling app for this purpose. I wanted a simple architecture and not too many different languages and frameworks. So I decided to use JavaScript for everything — Node.js and Express for the server-side, MongoDB for the database, and AngularJS for the front-end user interface.

This MEAN stack (Mongo, Express, Angular, Node) may one day surpass the simplicity of the LAMP stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) for web application development and deployment.”
