Svelte & Svelte Kit

Svelte is the fastest reactive Front-End Framework with that satisfies its users, see State of JavaScript survey.


Svelte is a new approach to reactive Front End Frameworks. It uses compilation to offer fast runtime performance, where competing frameworks need slower in-browser solutions. Svelte still offers all the benefits you can expect from a modern framework, like reactivity, components, ease of use, stores, etc.

Svelte Kit extends Svelte with a Router, code-splitting, offline support, server-side rendering, etc.
