In the web development world a stack is the combination of webserver, database and programming language, so you have the well known LAMP stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) and the Java stack (Tomcat [for example], Oracle [for example] and Java) and the Microsoft stack (Windows, IIS, SQL Server and C#). Now you also have the JavaScript stack (Node.js [with build in webserver] and MongoDB).

The problem is not JavaScript, but programmers who think "it's just a scripting language, how hard can this be". And they hit a brick wall again and again because JavaScript is a language with its own features, features that has to be learnt.

And JavaScript is unmaintanable? It's just a programming language. It's up to the programmer to structure your code. How is that different from other languages? Of course it's possible to write maintainable large projects in JavaScript.

I agree best practices and frameworks are still being developed and improved, but is JavaScript a horrible language? No, it isn't.
