DigitalOcean announces MEAN, a 1-click app installer

DigitalOcean has released MEAN, a one-click application installer for some application frameworks.

DigitalOcean is a new-breed Cloud hosting provider that’s develop-friendly. The company is based in New York City.

I use their services, and one of the features of the Cloud servers that I like, aside from the fact that they use SSD storage, is the ease with which a server can be brought online, upgraded and deleted.

With MEAN, the company aims to give developers a:

…One click image that provides a simple, scalable, and easy starting point for full stack Javascript web development. The beauty of MEAN is it takes care of the connection points between existing popular frameworks, solving common integration problems.

Seasoned devs as well as those new to node can utilize MEAN! The MEAN stack is a boilerplate that serves as the ideal beginning for MongoDB, Express, AngularJS, and Node.js based applications. Simply put, its purpose is to give users an efficient way to start developing MEAN based web apps with useful modules like mongoose and passport pre-bundled and configured. Users can take advantage of MEAN to checkout their own app or simply use the installed applications how they see fit.

DigitalOcean’s Cloud servers start at $5 per month. That gives you a 20 GB SSD server with 512 MB of RAM. If you wish to sign and up and take MEAN for s spin, sign up with my referral link. That’s how you get the experience the beauty of a DigitalOcean droplet, while also helping to keep this blog running.
