Getting started with Svelte

Two months ago, I wrote about the new JavaScript framework series in the MDN Web Docs. At the time, it offered tutorials for three of the most popular choices: React, Vue, and Ember. I’m pleased to say that they’ve now added tutorials for Svelte. This is fantastic news for The Lean Web!

Svelte provides a different approach to building web apps than some of the other frameworks covered in this module. While frameworks like React and Vue do the bulk of their work in the user’s browser while the app is running, Svelte shifts that work into a compile step that happens only when you build your app, producing highly-optimized vanilla JavaScript.

In other news, I'm still working on my switch to Eleventy. I'll stop mentioning it until I've made significant progress.
