Cut through the complexities of designing a monolithic web architecture using micro frontend architecture
Explore architecture patterns for building large-scale applications
Learn how to build, test, and secure your micro frontends efficiently
Book DescriptionMicro frontend is a web architecture for frontend development borrowed from the idea of microservices in software development, where each module of the frontend is developed and shipped in isolation to avoid complexity and a single point of failure for your frontend.
Complete with hands-on tutorials, projects, and self-assessment questions, this easy-to-follow guide will take you through the patterns available for implementing a micro frontend solution. You'll learn about micro frontends in general, the different architecture styles and their areas of use, how to prepare teams for the change to micro frontends, as well as how to adjust the UI design for scalability. Starting with the simplest variants of micro frontend architectures, the book progresses from static approaches to fully dynamic solutions that allow maximum scalability with faster release cycles. In the concluding chapters, you'll reinforce the knowledge you've gained by working on different case studies relating to micro frontends.
By the end of this book, you'll be able to decide if and how micro frontends should be implemented to achieve scalability for your user interface (UI).
