What do a social network, a taxi-hailing app, a streaming service, a task manager, and an auction marketplace have in common? No, it’s not that ADCI Solutions’ team has sufficient experience to create such products. The point is that these products are designed for thousands, hundreds of thousands, and millions of users.
How can such projects be created? You should search for the answer starting from the fact that their interfaces usually have lots of interactive elements. This means that...
We previously mentioned such applications as Facebook, Uber, Netflix, Trello, eBay, and many others. Computers and mobile devices of their users are constantly exchanging data with the server. The data is like satellites going simultaneously round the Earth, each moving along its own orbit. But while the satellite movement is thoroughly calculated, the data movement has no specific schedule.
Single-threaded task execution is not suitable for such applications, otherwise their operation would’ve been similar to a common situation in a cinema: one entrance to the auditorium, one ticket collector, and a queue of spectators, none of whom will get into the hall before the neighbor in the front.
MERN: a match made in heaven
A web developer with a good expertise in React will carry out the task quicker and save the project budget. If the developer has no expertise, it’s no problem – React has a low entry barrier and a large community that has developed many ready-to-use components and can be asked for help if anything happens. And since the main developer of the library is Facebook, you can expect that new features will appear quickly and security gaps will be filled in promptly.
MERN’s scope of application
If you expect to extend the project in the future, MERN is your choice. Such projects definitely include video conference services, cloud text editors, messengers, online games, eCommerce websites, and other websites used simultaneously by a lot of users in the “here and now” mode. Examples of popular applications created using the MERN stack include Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, DropBox, and Netflix.
- All tools are open source and have a long history, which guarantees the availability of a large developer community.
- The projects are easily scaled, not least because of using Node.js.
- The technologies the stack is comprised of are easily integrated into cloud platforms.
