Look inside
Micro frontends take a vertical approach to web development, splitting an application into standalone components that encompass everything from user interfaces to backend logic. In this liveProject, you’ll use the micro frontends approach to help solve a tricky issue for music streaming service Red Records.

Red Records has two separate development teams working in two separate time zones, and they are currently arguing over whether to use React or Vue.js for their frontend. Your challenge is to set up a new micro frontends architecture that will allow them to work independently, in parallel, with separate stacks, and no need to talk to each other! You’ll build two micro frontends using Vue.js and React respectively, and set up a Bootstrap client-side orchestrator to handle loading, persist authentication, and routing. Better be fast—your new app launches in just a few months.
This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.
