I've fallen into using SvelteJS for smaller scale projects since I just can't tear myself away from using a component-based system for development. The nice thing about it is all components get compiled down at the build step, so your page just gets loaded in a single bundle.js with server side rendering options that are dead simple to learn.

Because of this, it prevents pages from feeling heavyweight compared to the simple vanilla JS way, but abstracts away a lot of DOM manipulation I would like to avoid if I can.
