  1. As you introduce yourself as a front end engineer, I thought you would tell us more where the front end is located if any in the different cases and then what front end frameworks suit bast.
    Like Express, you have to write the front end, with MVC, no front end as pages are dynamically served and updated, with full stack MVC’s you have a front end framework included.
    How does this work with Rest API like NestJS you say it is Angular oriented. Does it mean you have to consider Angular as a front end in this case? As the only option left?

    1. Hi Gérard,

      NestJS is built on top of Express, and you can build MVC applications like you can do with Express. It’s just inspired by Angular, but you don’t need to use Angular in the frontend. You can check out the documentation here: https://docs.nestjs.com/techniques/mvc.

      NestJS is very versatile, it’s not just a for creating Rest APIs. Grouping the frameworks is not very strict, frameworks can belong to multiple categories. I’ll add a note about that.

    1. Hi Patrick.

      Thanks for commenting. Yes, NestJS can be used as a full-stack and MVC framework. However, it can also be used as a REST api. I have explained that under NestJS section.
