MERN is a scaffolding tool which makes it easy to build isomorphic apps using Mongo, Express, React and NodeJS. It minimizes the setup time and gets you up to speed using proven technologies.
MongoDB is a cross-platform document-oriented database. Classified as a NoSQL database, MongoDB eschews the traditional table-based relational database structure in favor of JSON-like documents with dynamic schemas, making the integration of data in certain types of applications easier and faster.
Express is a minimal and flexible Node.js web application framework that provides a robust set of features for web and mobile applications.
You need to have NodeJS installed and Mongo running to use MERN. Here are the instructions :
> npm install -g mern-cli > mern <YourAppName> > cd YourAppName > npm install > npm start
No configurations and setup. Just
mern and you are good to go.
Built on the solid foundations of React and Redux.
Start small; Easily extend it as per your needs.
Build production ready isomorphic apps easily.
