AdonisJS vs MEAN: What are the differences?

Developers describe AdonisJS as "A Node.js web framework *". It is a Node.js Framework which is highly focused on developer ergonomics, stability and confidence. On the other hand, *MEAN** is detailed as "A Simple, Scalable and Easy starting point for full stack javascript web development". MEAN (Mongo, Express, Angular, Node) is a boilerplate that provides a nice starting point for MongoDB, Node.js, Express, and AngularJS based applications. It is designed to give you a quick and organized way to start developing MEAN based web apps with useful modules like Mongoose and Passport pre-bundled and configured.

AdonisJS and MEAN can be primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.

MEAN is an open source tool with 11.8K GitHub stars and 3.57K GitHub forks. Here's a link to MEAN's open source repository on GitHub.

Accenture, Vungle, and Adsia are some of the popular companies that use MEAN, whereas AdonisJS is used by Lausanne Esports, R6Stats, and DORMshed. MEAN has a broader approval, being mentioned in 37 company stacks & 24 developers stacks; compared to AdonisJS, which is listed in 4 company stacks and 3 developer stacks.

      Sails.js
      Sails is designed to mimic the MVC pattern of frameworks like Ruby on Rails, but with support for the requirements of modern apps: data-driven APIs with scalable, service-oriented architecture.
      NestJS
      Nest is a framework for building efficient, scalable Node.js server-side applications. It uses progressive JavaScript, is built with TypeScript (preserves compatibility with pure JavaScript) and combines elements of OOP (Object Oriented Programming), FP (Functional Programming), and FRP (Functional Reactive Programming). Under the hood, Nest makes use of Express, but also, provides compatibility with a wide range of other libraries, like e.g. Fastify, allowing for easy use of the myriad third-party plugins which are available.
      Laravel
      It is a web application framework with expressive, elegant syntax. It attempts to take the pain out of development by easing common tasks used in the majority of web projects, such as authentication, routing, sessions, and caching.
      FeathersJS
      Feathers is a real-time, micro-service web framework for NodeJS that gives you control over your data via RESTful resources, sockets and flexible plug-ins.
      Node.js
      Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient, perfect for data-intensive real-time applications that run across distributed devices.

      MongoDB is a solid NoSQL store. Angular.js is being vetted as a potential front-end framework for the website (though it may ultimately not be used for the non-app site). Everything is running on node.js and hosted via an Express.js web server (though we are looking into Koa.js as it is the official successor to Express.js)

      FULL STACK ( preferred if;at all possible! ). Any "NEW" project (all me) I am tasked with I try to sketch it out with MEAN in mind first and then will tweak or stray from the 'plan' when necessary
