What are Micro Front End Applications?

Micro frontends are a software architecture pattern in which a large, monolithic frontend application is decomposed into a set of smaller, independent "micro" frontends, each of which is responsible for a specific domain or functionality within the overall application.

The goal of micro frontends is to make it easier to develop, deploy, and maintain large frontend applications by breaking them down into smaller, more manageable pieces. This can allow for greater flexibility and scalability, as well as improved collaboration among teams working on different parts of the application.

Micro frontends can be implemented in a variety of ways, depending on the specific needs and constraints of the application. Some common approaches include using iframes to isolate the micro frontends, or using a frontend router to dynamically load and manage the micro frontends as needed.
