M stands for MongoDB, an open-source, cross-platform database program that is a NoSQL database system
E is for Express.JS, which is an effective middle layer to develop RESTful APIs and dynamic web apps
N stands for Node.JS. It is for enhanced back-end services and develops scalable web application
MERN stack encapsulates database, server-side and client-side technologies for easy development of mobile and web applications.
MERN stack development has technologies that align with the current trends in the industry for building feature-rich and advanced applications that are scalable and responsive. MERN stack components are used to build a full-stack project with an attractive interface for users to interact. Three-tier MERN architecture enables the users to navigate through the pages and respond to actions quickly and smoothly.
MERN provides an end-to-end development environment with a full-stack development environment
It has a collection of dynamic user interfaces readily available with the library to execute code quickly
MERN makes it easy for JSON data to flow from front to back while making it faster to build and debug
MERN follows Model View Controller (MVC) architecture for easy development of workflows
MongoDB can easily be integrated with Node.js to manipulate, store and represent JSON data in web apps
HTTP responses and requests are encapsulated by Express.js to plan the URLs for server-side mapping
React.js enables developers to create an application that can change the data without reloading your page. Given the wide range of technology stacks, MERN is growing rapidly popular as an integral part of Full Stack Development. However, it is best suited for cloud-native JSON applications that require dynamic web interfaces such as interactive forums, workflow management, and social products. There are some additional core features of ReactJS that needs to be addressed and they are:
Before the development of React.js, a lot of complex coding was required. React uses JSX which has a particular syntax and lets you render subcomponents with HTML quotes and tags. It also supports creating machine-readable code and mixes components with an individual variable file.
React.js makes it easier to define and manipulate the objects that are used in dynamic web applications. React.js’ major advantage is to reuse components which in turn will provide better code maintenance.
For building high-load applications, Virtual DOM was introduced. DOM (document object model) created bottlenecks due to its tree structure and even small layers could make drastic changes. As React uses Virtual DOM, it can be used for heavy-loaded and dynamic solutions.
