Winning Combos: Web Tech Stacks of Successful Projects
I always find it useful to have a few examples that illustrate their effectiveness under certain circumstances. As a result, we have listed two exemplary web development stacks below and their brief descriptions.
The Django + Python stack brings numerous benefits to web app developers because of their excellent cooperation, since Django is written in Python. Furthermore, these two technologies offer clean code and are easy to learn. Having these features simplifies and speeds up the development process, in combination with the “all-inclusive” functionality of both technologies, making the creation of web applications incredibly fast and efficient.
LAMP is an acronym that stands for Linux, Apache HTTP server, MySQL database software, and PHP programming language. This development stack is highly popular thanks to its high performance and flexibility.
Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) is an operating system-independent software that can be used to install a LAMP server on Windows. As an alternative to Linux, you can use MAMP (MacOS), BAMP (BSD), or SAMP (Solaris). The stack allows you to use Windows and Microsoft SQL Server (WASP) instead of Linux and MySQL.
- Main databases: MongoDB, PostgreSQL, MySQL, OrientDB;
- Main Node.js frameworks: Express, Koa, Nest.js, Loopback, Sails.js, hapi.js;
- Front-end frameworks: Angular, Vue.js, React.js;

Additionally, there is a growing trend toward “cloud-native” application development, which has the potential to radically alter technology stacks. A service-oriented approach allows building applications by separating them into separate services, each built with its own programming language and framework. It allows you to select the optimal technology for each service, implement it independently then test and update it simultaneously.
The cloud-native app is deployed and hosted on one of the cloud computing platforms that offer a full range of functionality available via various APIs, such as Amazon Web Services. The AWS platform provides more than 90 services, including database, storage, and machine learning.
Here are four technology stack diagrams associated with famous global web projects that illustrate the contents and scope of successful web development stacks:
