In Detail

The MEAN stack is a collection of the most popular modern tools for web development; it comprises MongoDB, Express, Angular, and Node.js. While starting with MEAN is simple, it's very easy to make mistakes early on in development that lead to serious problems with more complex application development. Learning the best practices for MEAN will help you get started and avoid useless grunt work and common pitfalls, while keeping your application properly organized.

Starting with MEAN core frameworks, this project-based guide will explain the key concepts in each framework, how to set them up properly, and how to use popular modules to connect it all together. By following the real-world examples shown in this tutorial, you will scaffold your MEAN application architecture, add an authentication layer, and develop an MVC structure to support your project development. Finally, you will walk through the different tools and frameworks that will help expedite your daily development cycles.

Watch how your application development grows by learning from the only guide that is solely orientated around building a full, end-to-end, real-time application using the MEAN stack!


This book is an easy-to-follow guide to MEAN application development. The key concepts of each framework are explained sequentially and described through a real-world example, which will show you how it is put to use in creating the MEANest web application.

Who this book is for

If you are a web or a full-stack JavaScript developer who is interested in learning how to build modern web applications using the MEAN stack, then this book is for you. While possessing a basic knowledge of Node, Angular, and Mongo would be useful, you can still reap the benefits by learning from this book with little technical knowledge in specific areas.
