MEAN web development is a perfect evolving trend for the full stack JavaScript development. MEAN is the acronym of MongoDB, ExpressJS, AngularJS and Node.js.

The effective features of each one of these make ‘MEAN’ a complete one.

MongoDB is NoSQL database. For the data representation it uses JSON style documents. It lets you make use of just one language the whole way. MongoDB supports dynamic queries on documents using a document-based query language as powerful as SQL.

ExpressJS is an HTTP server framework for web applications that gives useful modules and elements to work upon the common task for the website. The simple interface can make request endpoints and cookie handling. ExpressJS is good at enabling the simple REST routes, handling automated HTTP header and supporting Connect middleware to plug in synchronous functions in order to manage the requests and responses.

AngularJS is a front-end JS framework use to develop complex client side applications with modular code and data binding UI. It is used to develop single page applications with the use of the MVC architecture. It improves the structure of the code and makes the testing easier with dependency injection.

Node.js is a concurrent JavaScript environment for building scalable and fast web applications. Before execution it compiles the JavaScript code to native machine code. Node.js is lightweight and perfect for the Real-time applications.
The benefits of MEAN Development is the reason behind its growing popularity.

Here are some advantages of MEAN Stack:

One of the most important benefits of all is that, it lets the developer write the entire code in JavaScript; from client to server. It’s a blessing for the JavaScript developers who have invested their time and money in learning JavaScript for the client side tasks. It supports the MVC (Model View Controller) architecture.
