How Svelte is different from all others templating engines like Angular, Vue and Ember? Why people are so excited about it? Just another HTML with loops and conditionals.

My apologies if it sounded like a trolling, I'm not here to mock anything. I heavily use React in production, however I'm open to new things. There was some hype about Vue, I wanted to try it, but now it seems Svelte is in trend. I watched a couple of tutorials but can't decide. Perhaps I just don't see something important? I'd be glad to change my mind.

Good point of start is looking up Youtube: RIch Harris. He has 2 presentations about the differences. At least thats how i got into it. One is with "Reactivity" in the title, the other one i dont remember, but there are only couple anyways :)

To me Svelte feels more like a logical extension to the technologies of the web platform (though there is always room for improvement) while React exists in it's own universe.

For some perspective this might be useful: The Real Cost of UI Components
