Discussion on: Svelte, why so much hype ?

For many years, I didn't touch anything JS but when I came back to it, I was impressed by its evolution. I really like nodeJS for example but when I tried Svelte, it blew my mind.
However, it's still too incomplete for me to adopt it in a project but I'll definitely revisit it later!

Interesting, what are you missing to make it complete enough ? 🤔

It may have changed now but when I tested it, I remember I had to type everything. By that, I mean there was no easy element management, especially for the UI.
For example, I am using VueJS for my project and with it, ElementJS so I don't have to design myself UI components (and because I'm not a good designer). I know I'm being lazy but if it's easier and faster, you're more flexible too.
As I said, it was at the time I tested it and I remember joining a discord channel about Svelte where someone mentioned he was working on something similar to a UI element repository so maybe now it's available.

You can get a hard time testing the components compared to other frameworks

Testing was not too hard because those were quick and one-time things. However, implementing it on production would require something more flexible and easy to maintain (UI elements comes to mind. I forget other aspects).

Hi, what do you miss?

Mainly UI elements management, I guess.
Well, I say "mainly" because I forgot the other points now 😅
