The app market is very competitive nowadays. In the first quarter of 2022, there were 3.3 million apps available on the Google Play Store and 2.11 million apps on Apple’s App Store, according to Statista. A separate report on global apps by Tech Crunch noted that the mobile market alone is expected to be worth $350 billion this year, an increase from 2021’s $295 billion.
One reason could be the available technologies for organizations to create apps. Unlike before, developers can now build their apps without starting from scratch.
One of those technologies rapidly gaining popularity among the tech community is the MEAN stack. In this article, we’ll dive into what the MEAN stack is and why app developers should start using it right away.
What is a MEAN Stack?
Express.js is a Node.js framework where you can build web applications. It works on the backend side and is responsible for the data transfer between the frontend and the database. It supports templates provided by the Pug engine technology.
Benefits of Using the MEAN Stack
Netflix, Facebook, YouTube, and other giant organizations use the MEAN stack, based on Infinjith’s Medium write-up. This is likely because the architecture provides enticing benefits for developers, including:
1. Cost Savings
All of MEAN’s components are open-source, meaning they can be publicly accessed and utilized for free. What is beneficial for companies too is that these technologies are regularly updated.
The MEAN stack is highly scalable and adaptable since it uses only one programming language. It is advantageous, particularly for developers who anticipate that they will need to expand their apps in the future. They also won’t have difficulty in the testing phase because the MEAN stack allows app builders to add elements without any complications.
Developers working on a tight timeline can rely on the MEAN stack for a fast turnaround because they don’t need to build their apps from scratch. Since only one scripting language is featured, it’s also not as labor intensive to store data or make changes during development.
