    It all depends on what I am doing. I like having Rails on the backend whenever possible. It allows me to build things FAST and get a prototype or a feature out of the door asap. I'll use Node for smaller apps , where's the backend will only work as an API of some sort.

    For the Frontend I've found myself using Angular a lot lately. The reason is pretty much the same as for Rails, Angular is really good at getting features out of the door fast. The problem with it is that it's easy to build a prototype you'll have to discard if you're not careful or aren't working with someone with certain degree of experience in Angular. If the frontend is simple enough, vanilla Javascript (with jQuery if it's more than basic stuff) will work for me most of the time.
