MEAN

Angular tools stack to be the Front-face of the application or website, M.E.A.N.

MEAN

The MEAN stack is a JavaScript-based framework for developing web applications. MEAN is named after MongoDB, Express, Angular, and Node, the four key technologies that make up the layers of the stack.

  • MongoDB - document database
  • Express(.js) - Node.js web framework
  • Angular(.js) - a client-side JavaScript framework
  • Node(.js) - the premier JavaScript web server

The advantages of the MEAN stack,

MEAN applications can be used in many ways with a cross-platform write-once approach. While MEAN is particularly suited to real-time applications, particularly those running natively in the cloud and single-page (dynamic) web applications built in Angular.js, it can be used for other use cases such as:

  • Workflow management tools
  • News aggregation sites
  • Todo and calendar applications
  • Interactive forums

Since all the components are based on JavaScript and JSON, the integration between the components of the stack is intuitive and straightforward.

The E and A of MEAN (Express and Angular) are two of the most popular and well-supported JavaScript frameworks for back-end and front-end development, respectively. Express makes routing and managing HTTP requests and responses super easy, and includes great support for middleware to handle JSON endpoints and form posts. Angular is a powerful tool for building dynamic HTML pages that communicate with a back-end server.

Building a high-throughput API, a simple web application, or a microservice, MEAN is the ideal stack for building Node.js applications.

All of the MEAN stack components are open source in nature and therefore allow a generous, free-of-charge opportunity for developers.

MEAN

MEAN is an open source web stack that is mainly used to create cloud-hosted applications. MEAN stack applications are flexible, scalable, and extensible, making them the perfect candidate for cloud hosting. The stack includes its own web server so it can be deployed easily, and the database can be scaled on demand to accommodate temporary usage spikes. A MEAN application enters the world optimized to take advantage of all the cost savings and performance improvements of the cloud.

JavaScript has long been a popular language for front-end web development—it’s flexible, dynamic, and easy to use. But it has been an option only for backend and database development for a few years, allowing developers to create applications using end-to-end JavaScript. MEAN removes the need to hire different specialists to develop each part of an application. Instead, you can use a single pool of JavaScript developers to work adaptively, where and when needed. Standardizing on JavaScript also provides an opportunity to reuse code across the entire application, reducing unnecessary reinvention.

MongoDB

MongoDB is an open source, NoSQL database designed for cloud applications. It uses object-oriented organization instead of a relational model.

 

media
Express

Express is a web application framework for Node.js. It balances ease of use and a full feature set. Forming the backend of the MEAN stack, Express handles all the interactions between the frontend and the database, ensuring a smooth transfer of data to the end user.

AngularJS

AngularJS - Google’s JavaScript frontend framework - It is effectively the default for frontend JavaScript development. The MEAN stack includes AngularJS to help developers build the user-facing side of the application

 

AngularJS comes with an ability to simultaneously develop for desktop and mobile use, its well-tuned performance and its easy-to-use templates make it the ideal front end to build cloud-native applications.

media
Node.js

Node.js is an open source JavaScript framework that uses asynchronous events to process multiple connections simultaneously. It comes complete with an integrated web server, making it easy to deploy your MongoDB database and application to the cloud.

With standout responsiveness, Workiy quickly implemented all requested changes. Their flexibility extended to expanding the scope and absorbing extra costs to deliver much needed features. Customers can expect a committed partner that is dedicated to delivering on all client needs. They’re very transparent and use Teamwork. Throughout the project there were around seven change requests and Workiy handled them well. Ravi and the whole Workiy team goes above and beyond to ensure that the customer gets what they need. When we made our scope expansion request, they absorbed about $5,000 of cost since we didn’t have the funding but truly required the feature.

Laura Hudani

We have been working with Workiy for the last 18 months and have found them to be a reliable and professional supplier. Their proposed consultants are of high quality and are delivered on time as promised. The company is easy to work with and their customer service is responsive and helpful. Overall, we are satisfied with our experience working with Workiy and would recommend them to others.

Mark Lier

Workiy has provided great service to Interior Health. Workiy was able to translate our requirements into a website that met our needs. The site has been well received by the Organization and the site owner is happy with the functionality of the Drupal platform. We continue to work closely with Workiey on enhancing the site and they have been very responsive to our requests. They’ve also been very patient as requirements change. They are an active participant in meetings where requirements are being discussed and they regularly show progress on the tasks that have been assigned.

Jonathan Hamelin

I’m the content webmaster for www.interiorhealth.ca, a website rebuilt by Workiy. I’m very satisfied with how the website operates. I had worked with WordPress before, and I love how Drupal’s back-end editing function operates in a similar way, yet overall, the platform is more sophisticated in the features you can introduce. I did not need much training to handle many aspects of the site: uploading files, editing and creating new pages, building landing pages, linking pages to the website menu, going directly into pages and inputting keywords to help their searchability, and creating/add visual blocks to pages.
