Why is MiniStar

MiniStar is a simple and open source front-end progressive plug-in framework.

It provides a complete set of cli/runtime/bundler development links. If you want to customize it, it's very simple. And MiniStar's design is gradual, even existing projects can be plug-ined little by little without having to complete them all at once.

Difference from Mini Program

MiniStar and Mini Program are more similar, because they both develop and deploy some functions as independent sub-projects. The difference is that the communication between MiniStar and the main program is closer, and the content to be reused is more. And there is no complicated runtime.

Mini Program is more suitable for occasions with higher security scenarios, while MiniStar plugins trust the plugin code more.

In addition, small programs are more suitable for app, while MiniStar is born for web

Difference from qiankun

MiniStar is a micro-kernel framework, and qiankun is a micro front-end framework

MiniStar pays more attention to the reuse of dependencies and the provision of main application capabilities, and emphasizes the isomorphism of the technology stack

qiankun is to solve the scenario where multiple heterogeneous sub-applications are running in the same main application. Pay more attention to the isolation of dependencies and code

They are two solutions, and they solve different problems.

If you are looking for a micro front-end solution, you can look at qiankun

Difference from requirejs

The implementation of requirejs is very similar to that of MiniStar.

But the smallest combination unit of requirejs is file

The smallest unit of MiniStar is a module.

MiniStar is more in line with modern front-end module ideas, and will not affect existing code habits.
