Using the MEAN Stack to implement a RESTful service for an Internet of Things application

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

This paper examines the components of the MEAN development stack (MongoDb, Express.js, Angular.js, & Node.js), and demonstrate their benefits and appropriateness to be used in implementing RESTful web-service APIs for Inter- net of Things (IoT) appliances. In particular, we show an end- to-end example of this stack and discuss in detail the various components required. The paper also describes an approach to establishing a secure mechanism for communicating with IoT devices, using pull-communications.
