Cocoa (OS X) vs MEAN: What are the differences?
What is Cocoa (OS X)? The Cocoa frameworks consist of libraries, APIs, and runtimes that form the development layer for all of OS X. Much of Cocoa is implemented in Objective-C, an object-oriented language that is compiled to run at incredible speed, yet employs a truly dynamic runtime making it uniquely flexible. Because Objective-C is a superset of C, it is easy to mix C and even C++ into your Cocoa applications.
Cocoa (OS X) 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.

I found mean.io just smooth, fun, orginized and just work out-of-the-box.
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
