The software market is flooded with myriad outstanding technology stacks. However, businesses, particularly those with lesser experience, find it quite challenging to decide on the right technology stack that would prove profitable for them. Typically these businesses are unable to keep up with the pace of technology updates as the older technology stacks that were once ruling the roost are being constantly replaced by emerging new technologies. So, before jump-starting the mobile app development process, it is very important that companies understand the trending technologies that are available in the market, get a thorough knowledge about them and then take the informed decision on which technology to go for.

My write up provides handy insights on the offerings of the trending technology stacks of 2020. Reading this article would prove immensely beneficial to a mobile app development company, mobile app developers, and entrepreneurs planning to develop trendy applications.

The offerings of Trending technology stacks of 2020

MEAN stack

MEAN stack is free and one of the most popular stack. This stack uses a single JavaScript language end-to-end. It follows a modern approach to crafting robust and speedy apps. MEAN comprises MongoDB (NoSQL database), Express.js backend web framework, Angular.js frontend framework, and Node.js cross-platform server. It supports MVC pattern and owing to Angular JS it is also mobile-friendly. MEAN proves particularly beneficial for use in calendars, news aggregation sites, mapping, and location-finding, etc.


  • MEAN, being an end-to-end JavaScript stack enables Mobile app developers to use a single language throughout the stack. Hence the code can be reused across the whole app, thereby reducing the chances of unnecessary rework.
  • It is an ideal option for creating scalable, flexible, and agile apps on account of the JS module library of Node.js and NoSQL, hence ideal for cloud hosting.
  • It provides developers flexibility in structuring data. This enables effortless switching between the document-based NoSQL and SQL.
  • Deployment of this technology stack becomes easy as it uses its own web server.
  • A mobile app development Company using MEAN can manage by hiring a sole team of JavaScript developers who are capable of working adaptively.
  • MEAN enjoys the support of a vibrant and active community that helps developers with issues and queries.

MERN stack

The MERN stack is similar to MEAN with the difference that React is used in place of Angular.js. React is a powerful library that creates SPAs and high-end applications having interactive interfaces. Moreover, MERN offers full-stack development and is capable of using codes on servers and browsers simultaneously. However, the React eco-system offers limited core features and so developers have to utilize third-party services.

MEVN stack

MEVN stack is another version of the MEAN stack wherein Vue.js is used as the front-end framework in place of Angular JS. Vue.js combines the best functionalities of React and Angular; and is has garnered popularity in recent years. Its key offerings are:

  • A rich set of tools
  • An easy learning curve
  • A clear programming style
  • Creation of highly performing web apps.

LAMP stack

LAMP stack happens to be one of the earliest open-source software stacks for building web apps that had stood the test of times and is used extensively even today. Drupal and WordPress are examples of Content Management System Platforms using LAMP.

LAMP comprises Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP.

Key highlights

  • Open-source and non-proprietary platform.
  • Components can be chosen as per specific business needs.
  • An apt platform for building customized web applications owing to its simplicity, stability, and proficiency.
  • Efficient handling of dynamic pages in which the content gets changed each time the page is loaded.
  • Linux can be replaced with (1) Microsoft Windows as the OS to form a WAMP stack or (2) MAC as the OS to form the MAMP stack.
  • PHP can be replaced by Perl or the newbie Python.

Ruby on Rails stack

Ruby on Rails stack is a rich archive of open source tools and library integrations that boost the app development speed. RoR enables you to architect complete web apps by integrating JavaScript, CSS, HTML, AND Ruby. Writing the code and debugging it becomes simpler and quicker with RoR. Check here for the role of RoR in web app development.  The frameworks and tools used in the Ruby on Rails stack are JavaScript, CoffeeScript, Bootstrap, jQuery, HTML, CSS, Redis, Node.js, Middleware, MongoDB, and JVM. One of the most popular app Airbnb has been developed using this stack.

Serverless stack

Going serverless ie. building apps on the cloud infrastructure is the latest mantra. The services and tools offered by Serverless computing platforms ease-out infrastructure management and scaling. AWS Lambda is an example of one of the earliest serverless platforms. Google Cloud is another popular provider of cloud computing.

Flutter for Web

Flutter for Web is a revolutionary cross-platform framework, that employs the same business logic and UI on every platform. Usage of Flutter allows one to add new functionalities, create interfaces, and fix bugs without spending time on deployment. Check here to know more about Flutter for the web.

.Net stack

.Net stack facilitates the creation of a bug-free framework decked up with rich features that lead to the creation of interactive and robust web apps. It is interoperable, language-independent, speedy, secure, and portable. However, this tech stack lacks multi-platform support, easy migration, and efficient code management.
