Hello Simon,

How lean is MEAN?

Can I easily change the MEAN stack? Can I replace AngularJS with another JS library? same with other components? Do you see any benefits in doing it?

PS: I've lil experience with NodeJS and Express, please correct if my question sound stupid

Given how new and confusing this area can be, I'd say there are very few questions that could be thought of as "stupid".

In his freely available first chapter as sample, Simon clearly specifies that Angular.JS can be replaced with Backbone, Underscore or Ember.

What is your definition of lean? Each of the components in the MEAN stack have been tried and tested through many a applications deployed to prodcution already. Also, to answer your question- Yes, the components of the MEAN stack can be replaced.

Express with Hapi/Koa
Angular with Backbone/Ember
