MEAN STACK VS. MERN STACK: AN ANALYSIS OF THE TWO TECH STACKS

Introduction

Choosing the correct technological stack, whether you’re a company’s IT expert or an entrepreneur planning to create online and mobile apps, is a challenge. You may have come across a comparison between the MEAN and MERN stacks in this context.

Choosing the correct technological stack for your company will also have an impact on its future development. Should you use the MEAN stack or the MERN stack? Which one will be more beneficial to your company? To gain answers to these issues, you must first understand the fundamentals of these two, such as their distinctions, similarities, and benefits

MEAN Stack vs. MERN Stack: A Detailed Comparison

1. DATA FLOW

The unidirectional data binding of React allows for a better data overview, which aids in the management of large projects. As a result, the MERN stack is better suited to large projects. If you’re working on a tiny project, Angular’s bidirectional data binding becomes the more efficient option. MEAN stack comes in handy here!

2. MOBILE APP DEVELOPMENT

Angular provides the Ionic framework for mobile app development, which allows you to create hybrid mobile apps. Because you just have one codebase for both iOS and Android platforms, these apps keep development costs low. Hybrid applications, on the other hand, fall short of the native user experience. React Native is a little different in this regard. The MERN stack is a preferable solution for mobile app development since it gives an almost-native user experience.

3. SCALABILITY AND SECURITY

MERN and MEAN stacks both provide best-in-class security. As a result, you have the option of selecting any of them. MERN, on the other hand, wins the game in terms of security because it is more scalable than MEAN.

4. LARGE-SCALE APPS

The MEAN stack is an excellent choice if you’re working on an eCommerce project. It can serve as the foundation for dynamic web apps and introduce a more streamlined method to prototyping. For constructing large-scale apps on full-stack development frameworks, I prefer the MEAN stack.

5. THE DEVELOPMENT TEAM’S EXPERTISE AND EXPERIENCE

Supporting documentation isn’t as important if your development staff is very knowledgeable and skilled with web frameworks. In this case, the learning curve is less suitable, allowing you to choose the MEAN stack. If your development team has a modest amount of experience, you must consider the learning curve, thus the MERN stack is a better choice.

ENDING

The close competition between the MEAN and MERN stacks makes it difficult to pick between the two or justify both. Both technologies, after all, have best-in-class functionality and capabilities. To create a dynamic app, choose the MEAN or MERN stack based on your company's needs.
