It is easy to build independent, stand-alone micro-frontends, but the real world applications are not so straightforward. Applications and fragments in micro frontend architecture need to exchange data and events in order to provide a wholistic experience to the users.
In this session we will explore the various ways that multiple fragments in a micro frontend architecture can communicate to exchange data and events (multi-level and sibling fragments), handle and manage shared state, and optimize data fetching at the client and at the server for varied architectural settings (CSR and SSR).
We will also look at the mapping for these communication patterns to various application use-cases.
- What are the various client-side communication patterns for micro frontend fragments at various levels in the tree?
- When should you consider client-side communication?
- How do we handle global context and state?
- How does the client-server communication work?
- Implementations and examples of the varies communication patterns with application use-cases.
