Micro Frontends or Monoliths?

Micro Frontends Help Team Specialization, Integration, and Coordination

The idea behind Micro Frontends is to think about a website or web app as a composition of features which are owned by independent teams. Each team has a distinct business area or mission it cares about and specializes in. A team is cross functional and develops its features end-to-end, from database to user interface.

Benefits include the ability to isolate team code so each team is able to choose and upgrade their stack without having to coordinate with other teams which increases resiliency of the whole application.

Here is our monthly curated list of thought-provoking books, blogs, podcasts, and articles around Micro Frontends:

Module Federation

By Webpack

This is a more technical explanation of the basic concepts required for successful micro frontends.

It is based on the general concept that multiple separate builds should form a single application, but these separate builds should not have dependencies between each other, so they can be developed and deployed individually.



Micro Frontends: Extending the Microservice Idea to Frontend Development
