MEAN vs React on Rails: What are the differences?

Developers describe MEAN 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. On the other hand, React on Rails is detailed as "Integration of React + Webpack + Rails using rails/webpacker to build Universal (Isomorphic) Apps (aka Server Rendering)". Project Objective: To provide an opinionated and optimal framework for integrating Ruby on Rails with React via the Webpacker gem React on Rails integrates Facebook's React front-end framework with Rails. React v0.14.x and greater is supported, with server rendering. Redux and React-Router are supported as well, also with server rendering, using execJS..

MEAN and React on Rails belong to "Frameworks (Full Stack)" category of the tech stack.

MEAN and React on Rails are both open source tools. It seems that MEAN with 11.8K GitHub stars and 3.57K forks on GitHub has more adoption than React on Rails with 4.32K GitHub stars and 542 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
