ok, ....Clearly I need to write about this. HAHAHA!

Yes, we got things working in IE11. We use babel for shims and polyfills, and we happened to be using fetch which requires a separate polyfill. The downside is that this took a 20k bundle, and bloated it up to about 103k. I kinda hate that, so I am currently R&Ding how to deliver a big fatty IE11 bundle, and a nice sleek bundle for everyone else.

You have inspired me to write a big summation post, with links to resources. To solve all these challenges I was on a wild goose chase across the interwebs, and if I can help anyone else avoid that, I would be happy. lol.

I don't have a repo I can share, as this is internal, but I will create something to share soon.

I totally understand that you cannot share an internal repo. I have the same problem as well...I feel blessed that I've inspired you to write your own post. I can't wait to read it!

Please share it once it's ready :)

Totally will!

In the mean time, here's just some silly thing I have been playing with to test out Svelte concepts.

svelte.dev/repl/32f9c97b2c4f4da0a4...

I'm also using this to teach my oldest (7yrs) about programming. ;) But it's so nice to work with. Svelte gets a ton of overhead out of the way.
