Sharing is Caring: (How) Should Micro Frontends Share State?
Micro frontends architecture is extremely powerful when it comes to splitting large frontend monoliths into smaller, individually deployable blocks, each is owned by an autonomous team and is focused on a business domain. But what about State? We are often told that micro frontends shouldn't share state, as this would make them coupled to each other. However, when it comes to complex UIs, it is not rare to encounter scenarios where state management between micro frontends is necessary. This talk is about finding the sweet spot — In which scenarios it is reasonable for micro frontends to share State? and how should micro frontends share State while remaining decoupled of each other? We discuss & compare different solutions in React.
