Overview of this book

The MEAN stack is a collection of the most popular modern tools for web development that helps you build fast, robust, and maintainable web applications. Starting with the MEAN core frameworks, this pragmatic guide will explain the key concepts of each framework, how to set them up properly, and how to use popular modules to connect it all together. By following the real-world examples shown in this tutorial, you will scaffold your MEAN application architecture, add an authentication layer, and develop an MVC structure to support your project development. You will learn the best practices of maintaining clear and simple code and will see how to avoid common pitfalls. Finally, you will walk through the different tools and frameworks that will help expedite your daily development cycles. Watch how your application development grows by learning from the only guide that is solely orientated towards building a full, end-to-end, real-time application using the MEAN stack!

Introducing ESLint

In software development, linting is the identification of suspicious code usage using dedicated tools. In a MEAN application, linting can help you avoid common mistakes and coding errors in your daily development cycles; moreover, it will allow you to set a unified code styling across your team. The most commonly used linting tool in our ecosystem is called ESLint. ESLint is a pluggable linting utility originally created by Nicholas C. Zakas in 2013. It allows us to lint our JavaScript code using a set of rules and preset configurations. We'll begin by installing the ESLint package in our application.


It is highly recommended that you learn more about ESLint by visiting the official project page at

Installing ESLint

Before we can start configuring our ESLint execution, we will need to install the ESLint package using npm. To do that, change your package.json file as follows:

  "name": "MEAN",
  "version": "0.0.11",
  "scripts": {
    "tsc": "tsc"...
