MongoDB, Express, React and Node.js Stack.

MERN is a full stack platform that contains everything you need to build a web application:
- MongoDB is a document database used to persist your application's data.
- Express serves as the web application framework.
- React is used to build your application's user interfaces. React offers a sever-side rendering function which makes it easier for search engines to crawl your web application.
- Node.js serves as the run-time environment for your application.
All of these technologies are well-established, offer robust feature sets, and are well-supported by their maintaining organizations. These characteristics make them a great choice for your applications. Upload your existing MERN website code to your new Linode, or use MERN's scaffolding tool to start writing new web applications on the Linode.

Compatible with: Debian 9
