Hoodie vs MEAN: What are the differences?

What is Hoodie? A fast offline-first architecture for webapps. Super-simple user management & storage. Great for mobile. We want to enable you to build complete web apps in days, without having to worry about backends, databases or servers, all with an open source library that's as simple to use as jQuery.

What is MEAN? 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.

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

"JSON" is the top reason why over 3 developers like Hoodie, while over 84 developers mention "Javascript" as the leading cause for choosing MEAN.

Hoodie and MEAN are both open source tools. It seems that MEAN with 11.8K GitHub stars and 3.57K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Hoodie with 3.51K GitHub stars and 314 GitHub forks.

        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
