JAWS vs MEAN: What are the differences?

JAWS: Javascript + AWS Stack – A server-free, webapp boilerplate using bleeding-edge AWS services. The Javascript + AWS Stack – A server-free, webapp boilerplate using bleeding-edge AWS services that redefine how to build massively scalable web applications; 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.

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

JAWS and MEAN are both open source tools. It seems that JAWS with 30.9K GitHub stars and 3.43K forks on GitHub has more adoption than MEAN with 11.8K GitHub stars and 3.57K GitHub forks.

          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
