Micro frontends for mobile

This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the RadarUnderstand more

Since introducing it in the Radar in 2016, we've seen widespread adoption of micro frontends for web UIs. Recently, however, we've seen projects extend this architectural style to include micro frontends for mobile applications as well. When the application becomes sufficiently large and complex, it becomes necessary to distribute the development over multiple teams. This presents the challenge of maintaining team autonomy while integrating their work into a single app. Although we've seen teams writing their own frameworks to enable this development style, existing modularization frameworks such as Atlas and Beehive can also simplify the problem of integrating multiteam app development.
