I’ve started learning Node attempting to utilize the MEAN stack, which utilizes MongoDB, Express, Angular and (gasp) Node. I’ve found the barrier of entry to be way to high. Express is too low level of a framework, MongoDB requires me to install a database service.

At NodeConf 2014, I learned of new technologies, which allowed me to synthesize my own stack. I use Hapi, LevelDB, Browserify, NPM, Gulp, Bower, Angular and Node. Afterwards I’ve learned Max Ogden had a clever name for a portion of my stack, as LEBRON, so on my Excella blog post I unveil: Hapi LEBRON.

Check it out and let me know what you think.
