Counting characters to compare a fairly simple components is way too naive as a comparison: I do like both Angular and Svelte, so I don't think I am biased when I say this. I'd like to see the comparison of two full-blown complex, real world apps. Only then we can probably compare them.
Well, as someone who's only familiar with Angular, I can say that I find these comparisons interesting and useful.
But for folks like you, there's a website delivering exactly what you're asked for: github.com/gothinkster/realworld
I agree: they're useful, I made one myself, but I wouldn't use counting characters as a metric for comparison. There's so much more in an application than components, which in my opinion are the "easy" part. The real world app you link is hardly one: I'm talking enterprise, resilient, rock-solid stuff. Probably not something you can find in the open, I admit.
I think your point is valid, but not all the apps are enterprise or super complex. And, for those kind of apps it's helpful to see this kind of comparisons. Btw, I love Angular and I'm using it on most of my projects.
As I said on previous posts, I'm just starting with Svelte and Sapper. Maybe in the feature I'll be comparing more complex stuff, but this series are all about components.
They are probably the easy part, but they are also a big part of the code we write every date.
Glad it was useful for you! 😄
As I said in another comment, that's hardly a real world app. A more complex todo app at best.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
