MEAN vs Mojolicious: What are the differences?

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.

What is Mojolicious? Perl real-time web framework. Back in the early days of the web, many people learned Perl because of a wonderful Perl library called CGI. It was simple enough to get started without knowing much about the language and powerful enough to keep you going, learning by doing was much fun. While most of the techniques used are outdated now, the idea behind it is not. Mojolicious is a new attempt at implementing this idea using state of the art technology.

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

"Javascript" is the top reason why over 84 developers like MEAN, while over 13 developers mention "Open source" as the leading cause for choosing Mojolicious.

MEAN and Mojolicious are both open source tools. It seems that MEAN with 11.8K GitHub stars and 3.57K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Mojolicious with 2.12K GitHub stars and 498 GitHub forks.

CodeLordz, ClickBalance, and Adsia are some of the popular companies that use MEAN, whereas Mojolicious is used by Binary.com, WebbyLab, and MynewMD. MEAN has a broader approval, being mentioned in 37 company stacks & 24 developers stacks; compared to Mojolicious, which is listed in 9 company stacks and 3 developer stacks.

      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)

      Web part is fully written on top of Mojolicious. Thanks Sebastian Riedel and all the contributors for the great framework!

      Веб бэкенд написан полностью на Mojolicious. Спасибо Риделю и всем участникам за этот фреймворк!

      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
