AngularJS – Installing in Windows 8.1 (MEAN Stack) is becoming a Popular Modern Framework for MEAN Stack(Mongo , Express , Angular , Node). I have recently tried it out and had real fun with it , such an awesome Boilerplate for MEAN Stack.


Most of the Developers around the world work on MAC/LINUX when they are with MEAN. But I thought why not to write a Full Process for Windows Users . Cool , lets do the whole thing to get running an app in Win8.1.

1.Lets install Node first.Go to Node Download Center and Download Windows Installer (.msi) based on your OS Architecture and just Install with few Clicks.

4. Install Gulp and Bower
