Tooling Independent Micro Frontends with Module Federation

This workshop is tailored for JavaScript Developers.


In this interactive workshop, you learn to build Micro Frontends using Module Federation without being restricted to the tooling. We start by looking at Module Federation v1 using Webpack - just to progress into Module Federation v2 and its changes. We then show how Module Federation can be used in rspack and Webpack before we look into esbuild and Vite. With each tooling we'll see how the reliance on Module Federation gets more and more decoupled from the tooling, allowing us to make choices on our own.


  • Node in current LTS version
  • Git Commandline Client
  • Editor, e.g. Visual Studio Code (free) or WebStorm/IntelliJ (commercial)


  • Build and Integrate Micro Frontends: Master the techniques of creating and integrating Micro Frontends using Module Federation.
  • Use Various Bundlers: Gain the flexibility to utilize bundlers other than Webpack 5, such as rspack, esbuild, and Vite, for your Micro Frontends.
  • Understand Module Federation Versions: Learn the key differences and improvements between Module Federation v1 and v2.
