Introduction to the MEAN Stack, Part One: Setting Up Your Tools

I’m going to take it one step further and give you guys a two-part post that will walk you through creating your first MEAN stack app- from installing the tools to actually writing the code. In Part One we’ll go through the setup and installation process. Next in Part Two we’ll walk through the steps for building a very simple to-do list. Part One consists of seven steps, although only the first two are are strictly necessary. We’ll start by installing all of our tools. If you’re on OSX, I highly recommend you install Brew to help with this process. 1) Installing MongoDB- First, we’re going to install MongoDB.OSX: Open up your Terminal window and run Ubuntu: Open up your shell and run: Windows: Go to and download the latest version of MongoDB for Windows, which should be a plain zip file.

Recently while lecturing on HTML5 to a large group of students, I wanted to poll them and display their voting results, updating in real-time.

Build a real-time polls application with Node.js, Express, AngularJS, and MongoDB

I decided to quickly build a polling app for this purpose. I wanted a simple architecture and not too many different languages and frameworks. So I decided to use JavaScript for everything — Node.js and Express for the server-side, MongoDB for the database, and AngularJS for the front-end user interface. “This MEAN stack (Mongo, Express, Angular, Node) may one day surpass the simplicity of the LAMP stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) for web application development and deployment.”

A few weeks ago, a friend of mine asked me for help with PostgreSQL. As someone who’s been blissfully SQL-­free for a year, I was quite curious to find out why he wasn’t just using MongoDB instead. It turns out that he thinks MongoDB is too difficult to use for a quick weekend hack, and this couldn’t be farther from the truth. I just finished my second 24 hour hackathon using Mongo and NodeJS (the FinTech Hackathon co­sponsored by 10gen) and can confidently say that there is no reason to use anything else for your next hackathon or REST API hack. First of all, there are huge advantages to using a uniform language throughout your stack. Another big reason to go with MongoDB is that you can use it in the same way you would a MySQL database (at least at a high level). As a NoSQL database, MongoDB also allows us to define our schema entirely on the code side. Var User = db.model('users', UserSchema); A Fullstack Javascript Framework.
