re: What is your favorite “non-mainstream” web development framework/library? VIEW POST


Svelte - really powerful compiler-framework without virtual DOM and runtime, with pretty syntax and easy in first steps development.
Also, it fully compatible with HTML custom elements.


I have been hearing a lot of buzz about Svelte! Does anybody know of a showcase of code and what people build with it??


Agreed, I tried tinkering with Svelte and so far I find it running smoothly and it's beginner friendly. Definitely recommend everyone to check it out.


Checked it out as Rich Harris (the creator of Svelte) was sharing his knowledge everywhere.

The tutorial was just pure bliss.


Awesome! I’d heard of Svelte, but had never used it before, and I think I’m going to give it a try now that you mention it.

Thanks for the comment!


Update — I wrote a small project in Svelte, and I’m really enjoying the organization provided by the component structure, and the JavaScript bindings and events!


True, I've enjoyed using Svelte for some personal stuff.

Of course, it's a long way before it can match Vue, React or Angular. I hope IDEs will provide first-class support for it soon.
