JHipster vs MEAN: What are the differences?

Developers describe JHipster as "An Open Source application generator". It is a free and open-source application generator used to quickly develop modern web applications and Microservices using Spring Boot + Angular / React / Vue. 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.

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

JHipster and MEAN are both open source tools. It seems that JHipster with 14.1K GitHub stars and 2.88K forks on GitHub has more adoption than MEAN with 11.8K GitHub stars and 3.57K GitHub forks.

Accenture, Vungle, and Adsia are some of the popular companies that use MEAN, whereas JHipster is used by Logo Yazilim, apside, and CSB. MEAN has a broader approval, being mentioned in 37 company stacks & 24 developers stacks; compared to JHipster, which is listed in 5 company stacks and 5 developer stacks.

        Spring Boot
        Spring Boot makes it easy to create stand-alone, production-grade Spring based Applications that you can "just run". We take an opinionated view of the Spring platform and third-party libraries so you can get started with minimum fuss. Most Spring Boot applications need very little Spring configuration.
        Grails
        Grails is a framework used to build web applications with the Groovy programming language. The core framework is very extensible and there are numerous plugins available that provide easy integration of add-on features.
        Django
        Django is a high-level Python Web framework that encourages rapid development and clean, pragmatic design.
        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
