Tiny JS frameworks: Preact and Svelte

This is an interesting article.

What I find very appealing about frameworks like Svelte is that it gives you most of the productivity boost of working in a framework, without paying the price of downloading a large runtime.

This is particularly helpful if you are building smaller page features and not a large SPA.

I have a practical example on my blog of this. I converted a commenting feature written in Aurelia to Svelte. The component was reduced from over 100k to about 4.7k.

More details here if interested:

I have also notices that Svelte has relatively decent compatibility with the closure compiler which might allow for further optimization.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
