Discussion on: Why SvelteJS may be the best framework for new web devs

You can do this too, but the proper way is to use svelte.preprocess.

The reason I don't import directly into components (other than sass variables) is because Svelte strips unused classes, and your imported CSS is going to have a lot of bloat which will need to be stripped, which will result in long build times.

That makes a lot of sense. Thanks! I plan on giving Svelte another go here soon.

Hi Brian, Ben, et all reading this. For those trying to put Svelte and Bulma together in a project, by coincidence I recently was trying to do the same thing, I think I solved and inside Svelte components it recognizes Bulma. Would be great if I can get oppinnions from you guys, as I was thinking to post some article on next days or make a full example maybe connecting it to a REST api, but now reading this great posts and yor comments, maybe I should investigate about svelte.preprocess first to give it a try.

Anyway, here you have the github link: github.com/jumanja/SvelteBulma

Ah I liked how you did that!

Importing it in your css file. Pretty clever. That makes it easier, reminds me of how it's done in Next.js too.
