What technologies are used for building a website or a mobile app is extremely important for deciding the fate of the app and its performance output. The stack of technologies used for building a website or mobile app often plays an elementary role in deciding its success.
In the development world, there are many different technology stacks. Two of the most popular technology stacks are MEAN stack and MERN stack. Why are these stacks so popular? What values do they offer to the developers and users worldwide? These are the questions we are going to answer through this post.
A technology stack basically means a cluster of programming languages and frameworks used for building a technology solution such as software or mobile app or website. These clusters or combinations of technologies can be of different types embracing programming languages and frameworks across multiple disciplines.
Full-stack refers to the technology combinations that can take care of all development tasks including frontend, backend, database, and testing. A full-stack developer is a professional who has expertise in the programming languages and software applications required for building each of these development tasks. Many enterprises hire full stack developers who can build the frontend and backend of the app and take care of database development as well as testing.
Full-stack developers enjoy more popularity principally because they can visualise the output of the entire software application and all its facets rather than being stuck to either frontend or backend. Having a comprehensive and total view of the app help deliver optimum user experience (UX). On the other hand, by working in the two of both frontend and backend developers they can handle small budget app projects better.
Let’s have a quick look at the key advantages of full-stack development.
Let’s have a quick look at the key constituents of the MEAN stack.
There are many benefits that make MEAN stack popular among the developers. Here are some of the key reasons to choose MEAN stack for app development projects.

Let’s have a quick look at the key constituents of the MERN technology stack.
MERN stack offers a whole array of advantages for developers as they can find appropriate technologies for all development tasks. Some of the key reasons that make developers prefer MERN stack include the following.
Both MEAN and MERN stacks are quite similar to one another as they use the same frameworks for all requirements except for the frontend development. While Angular is the frontend framework in MEAN stack, React is used as the frontend framework in the MERN stack.
Both the stacks are equally powerful and popular for web development projects of all types and niches. As full-stack development is getting popular both MEAN and MERN stacks are being considered as key development skills for most web app projects now.
