BP180: Use a consistent architecture across all microfrontends to ensure consistency and maintainability.
Microfrontends are a way of breaking down a large monolithic frontend into smaller, more manageable pieces. Each microfrontend is responsible for a specific feature or set of features. However, without a consistent architecture, it can become difficult to maintain and scale the system. By using a consistent architecture, developers can easily understand how each microfrontend fits into the larger system and how to make changes without affecting other microfrontends.
One example of a consistent architecture is to use a modular approach.
Each microfrontend should be self-contained and have its own set of dependencies. This makes it easier to manage dependencies and avoid conflicts between microfrontends.
Additionally, each microfrontend should have a clear interface for communicating with other microfrontends. This can be achieved through the use of APIs or events.
By using a consistent interface, developers can easily integrate new microfrontends into the system without having to modify existing microfrontends.
Another best practice is to use a consistent set of design patterns and coding standards. This can include using a specific set of naming conventions, coding styles, and design patterns. By using a consistent set of standards, developers can easily understand how each microfrontend works and how to make changes. Additionally, it can help to reduce the amount of code duplication and make it easier to maintain the system over time.
