What are the differences between Svelte and react.js

There are a few key differences between Svelte and React.js:

  1. Svelte is a compiler, while React is a library. This means that Svelte outputs code that is ready to run, while React needs to be compiled into code that can run on a web browser.

  2. Svelte is a newer technology, having been released in late 2017. React was first released in 2013.

  3. Svelte is smaller in size, and can be less memory-intensive than React.

  4. Svelte is less popular than React, but is gaining in popularity.

  5. Svelte has a smaller community of developers than React.

Overall, both Svelte and React are great technologies, and it is difficult to say which is better. It really depends on your individual needs and preferences.
