The Pit of Performance: Fast by default with Sveltejs

On 14th January 2020 at General Assembly as part of LWP January: new year, new framework?

Building modern web UIs is a balancing act involving many competing priorities. The tools we use should reduce the time and energy we need to spend in order to make good decisions.

Svelte is a compiler and view library that generates performant front-ends by default and makes reactivity a first-class citizen by moving it directly into the language. We will investigate bundle-size, DOM and SSR performance as well exploring some additional opportunities for optimisation.
