Seamless UI Harmony - MicroFrontend Integration Secrets

web development

MicroFrontends allow developers to break up monolithic UIs into smaller, manageable components. This approach can be a game-changer, but it does come with its challenges, especially when it comes to integration. Here are some secrets to ensure seamless UI harmony.

1. Consistent Design System: Use a design system across all micro apps to ensure visual consistency.

// React code for a button component import { Button } from 'design-system'; <Button variant="primary">Click me!</Button>

2. Shared Dependency Versioning: Keep dependency versions in sync across all micro apps to prevent unexpected behaviors.

// package.json { "dependencies": { "react": "^16.13.1" } }

3. Use of Custom Events: Leverage the CustomEvent API for communication between micro apps.

// dispatch a custom event window.dispatchEvent(new CustomEvent('myEvent', { detail: 'Hello from Micro app A' })); // listen to the custom event window.addEventListener('myEvent', (event) => console.log(event.detail));

Remember, the key to MicroFrontend integration is consistency and clear communication between components. Happy coding!
