MEAN (Mongo, Express, Angular, Node) stack is getting popular, and now that I’m familiar with the individual technologies of this stack, I really feel that it will continue to be a popular choice for quick and powerful web development. I ran across a few popular boilerplates, and I think mean.io (http://mean.io/) is the most popular repo right now. I like the supporting technology choices that this boilerplate made (bower, jade, karma, mocha, jshint) as well.
I forked the repo to restructure the project to my liking. I already made some changes to the angular structure, and I will probably get to the express structure in a week or two. Here’s my fork (https://github.com/leedavidr/mean) for anyone interested in seeing the direction.
