What is MERN?

MERN stack is one of the well-known web development frameworks. It’s good to improve the overall performance of the applications.

MERN is an easy-to-understand JavaScript stack that makes it easier and faster to develop full-stack Web applications. MERN stack is an umbrella term used for MongoDB, Express JS, React, Node JS. In the coming years, the MERN stack is likely to be used extensively since more and more applications are now built on JavaScript.

1) MongoDB :

MongoDB is a popular document database in which data is stored with JSON-based query language. It is used for high-volume data storage that can run over multiple servers with the best flexible and scalable features.

Features of MongoDB:
  • Indexing documents becomes easier.
  • Runsoncommodity hardware therefore it is cost-effective.
  • It is flexible and permits the user to build tables, schemas, and databases.

2) Express JS :

Express.js is a backend Web application framework for Node.js framework. Instead of writing full webserver code by hand Express makes it easier for developers to write server code. It helps in the creation of large web applications and API.

Why use Express JS?
  • It is fast and scalable
  • Easy to configure and customize.
  • Compatible with various middleware which can be used to perform additional tasks on request and response.

3) React JS :

It is a client-side JavaScript library. Released by Facebook, React is an open-source and free frontend JavaScript. It handles the view layer that can be used to develop both mobile and Web applications. Since the developer of the library is Facebook, all new features will appear quickly and security gaps are filled in promptly.

Features of React:
  • It is a component-based framework. Code written in templates makes it easy to pass the entire data through the application.
  • Data flows in one direction since it supports one-way data-binding.
  • The virtual DOM is a lightweight copy of the original DOM-which includes all the properties of real DOM.

4) Node JS :

This is an environment for JavaScript code execution on a server, not in a browser, developed using the Google JavaScript Engine V8. It is designed to build a scalable network application that can execute JavaScript code outside of a browser.

Features of Node
  • It supports an open-source JavaScript runtime environment.
  • It enables parallel (or multithreaded) task execution.
  • Helps to build a powerful server-side application.

Major Benefits of MERN Stack

  1. Document-oriented data storage.
  2. Manages database with flexible and robust technology.
  3. Time-saving and easy way to use.
