What are Micro Frontends?

Micro Frontends are a fundamental building block mapping Frontend customer experiences packaging HTML, CSS, and Javascript within a defined scope of a frontend experience and mapping to one or more APIs. The purpose is to eliminate dependencies between teams that slows development and increases the complexity of managing digital products using a single page architecture. In other words, Micro Frontends are the extension of the microservice concept to the frontend world.

Why and How of Micro Frontends?

Modyo powers Micro Frontends

Modyo allows developers to work on Micro Frontends using the platform’s concept of Widgets, which are building blocks of digital products built using the Modyo Platform. Developers can start from one of the templates in our Widget Catalog, modify the code and then push the Micro Frontend to Modyo using the Modyo Command Line Interface (CLI). For scenarios with few developers and accelerated speed, Modyo comes with a Widget Builder that allows developers to build, publish, and maintain Widgets right from the browser - Modyo web console.

Modyo also provides an API endpoint to collect and analyze business events generated from Widgets and Microservices to create and update user segments, called Targets, that allow the creation of customized digital experiences. Modyo participates in the user login process through our SSO integration so it can understand the "who did what" of business events.
