Have you built any projects with Svelte?

Svelte has been around for quite a while now. It's pretty lightweight, fast, concise, and is essentially a compiler, which means there is no virtual DOM and all the other unnecessary stuff.

As far as I have played around in the sandbox mode, it felt like it would be an awesome tool for smaller apps to get you up and running quickly.

The syntax reminded me of a bit of Vue and the HTML, CSS, and Javascript approach in .svelte files reminded me of the good old classic design we used decades ago, while still using components.

Have you built any projects with Svelte and did you like it?

I started doing svelte almost a month ago, and I like it so far. I've managed to do a couple of projects using svelte.

Pasteit! - A mini pastebin on IPFS

Shareit! - A file sharing service using IPFS

IPLocator - Locate IP addresses using a public API

Hope you like them

I had a blast using Svelte and I even wrote a blog about my first experience with Svelte. Check it out, there is some sample code in Github too.

Tailwind really goes hand-in-hand with Svelte ๐Ÿ‘ญ
To be honest, that was my initial thought ๐Ÿ˜‰

Iโ€™ve been using Svelte since version 1 and have done many projects in it. Before, I used Vue.js. Switching to Svelte cut development time down and code size at the same time. It is much easier to use.

You can see my website: customct.com which is powered by Svelte from GitHub Pages. The front page is a Svelte code and all the other pages are read from the markdown files on the repo. I have links in there to my Svelte tutorials and projects. Have a peek.

My new blog on Hashnode.com has my article about using Svelte with NW.js.

What dictated you do not use it (as I understand) as the main framework daily? Dev environment at work? Continuous projects in different frameworks? Something else?

No jobs in my locality, when i was searching for framework to learn, i saw react react everywhere, but when i saw react i dont like it, so i continue my search found about svelte found its easy to use and read blog about it found out it does better than react, after learning svelte did 10+ projects on it after that i search for job i found out no jobs, so i have to switch to react, now i am working on react

I have a feeling like 90% of devs choose or are forced to learn React mainly due to job opportunities ๐Ÿ˜‰ Otherwise they would preferably work with Vue or Svelte ๐Ÿ˜‰

reading.email is a newsletter reader built with Svelte to get more people reading more newsletters more often. Our weekly newsletter informs you as more newsletters are added: reading.email/newsletter/readingem... A list of CSS newsletters is being built: reading.email/list/css. More dev newsletters coming soon.

One of the best things about Svelte is how quickly one can build private "utility" apps that help with backend, reports and user management.

Comments welcomed about Reading.email. There are still some technical challenges (but Svelte is not one of them). So app is being slowly rolled out.

You should add some feature requests for them, maybe they become a reality ๐Ÿ˜‰
