MERN Stack – Build a Film Hall Application

Handle Your Project in Details

What is MERN?

The MERN stack is a set of frameworks and tools used for developing a software product. They are very specifically chosen to work together in creating a well-functioning software (see a MERN app code at the post bottom).

Examples that are widely used in today’s web development:

  • MERN (MongoDB, ExpressJS, ReactJS, NodeJS)
  • LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP)
  • MEAN (MongoDB, ExpressJS, AngularJS, NodeJS)

Let’s focus on MERN

  • MongoDB: A document-oriented, No-SQL database used to store the application data.
  • NodeJS: The JavaScript runtime environment. It is used to run JavaScript on a machine rather than in a browser.
  • ExpressJS: A framework layered on top of NodeJS, used to build the backend of a site using NodeJS functions and structures.
  • ReactJS: A library created by Facebook. It is used to build UI components that create the user interface of the single page web application.
