Frontend or Front-end or FE is a front-facing layer or application. It can be many things.

It can be:

  • Facebook mobile app
  • A user-facing application (website, mobile app)
  • A client that connects to a backend or server
  • An admin website that connects to a backend but the end-user will never see
  • Anything that the user can interact directly
  • Etc.

When people say frontend most of the time it's a user-facing application.

Let's think about a restaurant. They have a front-facing restaurant and a kitchen. The front-facing restaurant where guests can sit and enjoy their meals is the frontend.
