MEAN vs Catalyst: What are the differences?

Developers describe MEAN 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. On the other hand, Catalyst is detailed as "Open-source Perl MVC web framework". It is the most popular agile Perl MVC web framework that encourages rapid development and clean design without getting in your way.

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

MEAN is an open source tool with 12K GitHub stars and 3.59K GitHub forks. Here's a link to MEAN's open source repository on GitHub.
