Hi Mark,

Hate is a strong word, but you're totally allowed to have preferences. I think you should only use stuff you enjoy, and makes sense to you.

Personally, I prefer the separation of markup and JavaScript. Having lot's of JS code embedded in templates makes it harder for me to reason about.

The purpose of Svelte's abstractions is not about line count, rather, it's about developer experience. To help developers get more done with their limited time.
