Software Systems are just like the underground roots of a plant like sugarcane, based on which the entire Software is brought into being. Everyone knows that a disciplined, systematic structure is a pre-requisite for the profound development of literally anything and everything, be it a startup, construction, or even agriculture for that matter! Similarly, the requirement of constructing the fundamental bases for building scalable software in the field of Software Development opens up the way for the discipline of Software Architecture.

What is the Best Architectural Pattern for Enterprise Software Development?
There are many architectural patterns available in the market, but choosing the right one is often a difficult task…

Like an architect, a Software Architect drafts a blueprint for the Systems of the Software Elements, Relations, and Properties. This handy blueprint clears up the path for the developer to design the various layers of the application, resulting in the smoother interaction of end-users with the application.

In more simplified terms, an architectural pattern for the application is made and provided by the Software Architect before its development. This pattern comprises the stepping stones for the developers to walk on. Thus, it helps the developer in constructing a constructible, easy-to-manage, and scalable application by simplifying the internal processes of each part of the application.

Micro Frontend Architecture: What It Is, Why It Matters, and What are the Benefits?
Micro Frontend Architecture is said to be the revolutionary approach that redefines frontend development. Let’s find…

Several ways and methods are deployed by the Software Architects for this purpose. But, as per our analysis, the Frontend Architecture is one of the most efficient methods to execute as it can help you achieve the highest level of Scalability!

What is the Frontend Architectural Pattern?

In the universe of Software Architecture, there are many Architectural Patterns to choose from and for a master professional, it can be a tough task to choose the right pattern. Some of these are Layered, Microservices, Microkernel, Event-driven, and Space-based, among many other architectural patterns.

But Front-end Architecture is for the higher-level concerns. It is one of the widely used, extreme or “revolutionary” approaches as it redefines the method of Front-end Development. This means that the Front-end Architectural Pattern avoids low-level concerns. The Front-end Architecture focuses only on the higher-level issues or concerns that require the developer’s attention for the success of the Enterprise’s Front-end Product (or Development). It requires the selection of the right Tech Stack, Structuring of Project Files, and Establishment of Smooth Communication amidst them.

As such, some of the highlighted architectural concerns of the Front-end Architectural Method can be listed as relating to the conversion of the non-functional conditions to performing directives relevant to the front-end development, the definition of standards, developing and maintaining the ADR, analyzing the status of current technologies, overseeing and forecasting directions of other applications for better recommendations on system design, continuous Research and Development for innovation and competition, deployment of tasks and team management, quality assurance, smooth communication of debates and discussions to team and stakeholders, team arrangement, building and optimization of the dev-environments, identifying the opportunities, and more.

In the competitive and expanded field of Software Architecture and Development, Front-end Architecture stands out as a specialization that can help you reach the highest level of scalability. If performed rightly, the results are insane! The growth is immense.

Systematizing Your Code for Scalability and Potential Growth

The Frontend Architect aims to produce, construct or draft a design that provides smooth machinery for an effortless setup. Another aim is to provide efficient remarks or recommendations in the documented form, thus lessening the human blunders as much as possible that is easy to make in an iterating task.

For this purpose, organizing the code is of prime importance. Instead of messing up your head later and getting frustrated while in the process, try to put in an extra hour with the Front-end Architect initially. Invest your precious time in structuring the data flow and setting up the folders, connecting the elements correctly. For this to perform well, you need to structure or strategise on the code itself! Thus, your code must speak for itself. A good folder with a dedicated naming ritual can help you save time, reducing human error, thus avoiding the mess.

‘Ritualise’ Consistent Naming of Folders

No matter which React-based project you might be working on, a classic folder of ‘Components’ is always present to welcome you. Organizing it better can do wonders! So, here are some of our suggestions-

  1. Ui: From the smallest to the most essential ones, all of your basic elements or components must be inside this particular folder.
  2. Layout: Several layouts of the software can be put inside the Layout folder. This can help you in lessening the mess immensely!
  3. Page-related Components: Different pages of the software can have similar components. Thus, imagine wasting an hour on such a task when you can just reuse the component!! Thus, page-related components can help you in building the page-components directory which can help you down the road of the entire project of the Enterprise.
  4. API. For all the backend services, React Query or hook requests, and services, an API folder can be handy. It can be further divided into domains.
  5. Media. For all the fonts, photos, favicons, and videos.
  6. Library: Within this one, you can put in all the logic and hooks that can be used again, later on.
  7. Pages: For several routes within the application there can be a Pages folder.
  8. Locale: JSON files, including the language translations across the application, can be put inside this folder.

These were just some of the many possible folders that you can make based on the Enterprise requirements as a Front-end Architect or a Software Architect practicing the method of Front-end Architecture.

Wrapping Up

As of now, Micro Frontend Architecture is emerging as a revolutionary and promisingly efficient solution for Front-end Development. Growing from the method of Microservices Architectural Pattern, Micro Front-end further “breaks the monolithic codebase of the Front-end into small pieces to address different parts of an application simultaneously.” It is said to be the modern approach and architectural pattern suggested as a lucrative solution for reaching the insanely highest level of scalability!
