Like many fast-growing companies, we reached a point where a centralized monolith no longer scaled. As requirements, products and teams grew, the monolithic approach was not only a bottleneck for our velocity but also for the areas of responsibility of the various teams.
A new and more contemporary approach was needed, and it came in the form of Micro-Frontends. This promised to eliminate our most urgent problems. We became faster, more independent and could scale.
We tell the story of our journey and gradual migration from a monolith, to many-SPA, to our framework-agnostic AppShell architecture.
