This code pattern will deploy a Mongo, Express, React, and Node (MERN) web app to IBM Cloud. Deploy from a starter kit in a matter of minutes or walk through a tutorial to perform a few steps. The end result will be a MERN app running on Kubernetes or Cloud Foundry (that’s up to you!) in just a few clicks.
The MERN stack and its variants (MEAN and MEVN) have made a huge impact on web development — offering a single language for both the client and server side, JSON everywhere, an open source NoSQL database, and many other benefits. The MEAN/MERN stack has become essential for the modern web developer.
This code pattern shows you how to create a web app that is pre-configured with the MERN stack with the goal of deploying the app to IBM Cloud in a matter of minutes. You will use the IBM Cloud Developer Tools CLI to reduce configuration steps, so you can run the application locally, too.
By going through this code pattern, you will understand how to:
