Micro Frontends mimic the idea behind microservices, but for frontend instead of backend.
It's about splitting a single monolithic app into multiple, smaller apps, where each of the apps are responsible for a distinct feature of a product.
This makes it possible for businesses to scale better, when there's a team for every smaller app, which they can work on in isolation with their own technical decisions.
By keeping the apps smaller and separated, they are also more understandable and easier to apply changes to.
This should also make it possible for separate independent deployments.
When we develop our React applications there is a part which is as important as the development itself, and which sometimes is left behind: the testing.
In this post I will introduce Detox as a tool for end-to-end testing for React Native. Detox helps us reduce our reliance on manual QA.
In this post I will present some tricks that I learned creating demo sites for blog posts and PoCs. You will learn how to configure a JSON-server API and deploy it on the same Heroku site than the frontend app. You will also learn how to use Faker to generate fake data for your JSON server.
During the past few years, browser applications built with modern frameworks have been taking over the static, native applications we were used to use. The key of their success is the ability to disguise like system applications, emulating complex techniques like animations which they use to retain the consistency with other native applications. In this blog post we will learn how we can use Angular to write complex animations directly from our code, and we will learn their benefits over standard CSS transitions.
