Is MEAN still active? #638
Short answer: nope.
Note that http://meanjs.org/ (inactive now) and http://mean.io/ are two separate projects. The former was a fork of mean.io in 2014: http://blog.meanjs.org/post/76726660228/forking-out-of-an-open-source-conflict
Trustroots was built on meanjs.org version.
Riess.js was an attempt to move it forward but it seems to have stalled, too.
Anyway, they’re written in Angular v1 which is old and outdated and there wasn’t clear update path to v2 and onwards (think Drupal style major breaking updates), so we got stuck.
We’ll eventually need to look into replacing Trustroots frontend bit-by-bit with something else, e.g. React. It'll be a good change to decouple backend and frontend codebases a bit further, too.
I’d say regarding TR's framework, a lower hanging fruit would be to turn at least backend code from ES5 to ES6, I wrote a bit about it in chat, copypasting some bits:
We're on our own now. :-) Docs and stuff are still out there so it doesn't hurt to mention the fact, but going forward there aren't any "free" framework level updates trickling down for us.
